OMM Artist Residency Programme
30 March – 30 June 2020, Eskişehir, Turkey

Major new museum OMM – Odunpazarı Modern Museum – has announced a global open call for a fully-funded artist residency program in Eskişehir, Turkey.

Applications are open to artists from across the globe until 30 January and the program runs from 30 March – 30 June 2020. The artists accepted will be announced on 20 February 2020.

The residency is the first official season of a long-term guest artist programme developed by the museum, which opened in September 2019 designed by renowned architects Kengo Kuma and Associates.

The programme aims to bring together creatives from different backgrounds to engage in productive dialogues, encouraging experimental thinking, collective methodologies and personal growth. The stay facilitates cultural exchange through artist talks, workshops and seminars exploring local practices and techniques in Eskişehir, known as the cultural capital of Turkey’s Anatolia region.

The residency accepts all forms of artistic approaches including but not limited to painting, printmaking, photography, film, sound art, new media art, sculpture, and graphic design.

At the end of each residency, the work of the resident artists will be displayed at the museum in a group exhibit with fellow residents.

Idil Tabanca, Chairperson and Creative Director of OMM, said:

“I want OMM’s Artist Residency Programme to be defined by its exciting, creative and open-minded approach. We want artists from diverse cities and cultures, who practise different artistic techniques, to participate in our flagship residency and bring a global perspective to OMM. In bringing international creatives to be inspired by our iconic new museum we are creating a bridge for cultural exchange between Eskişehir and the world.”
