LAGO MIO summer residency – Call for artists

15. März 2019

LAGO MIO Lugano is looking for visual artists for its summer residency in July/August 2019.

The lake view residence above the roofs of the old town comprises ten rooms on 200 m2. In addition to the free stay, we plan to provide CHF 1’000/month/artist, a production budget, travel expenses, and personal support. We are in the process of raising funds and will be able to provide more detailed information on the level of support by the application deadline. The jury will be announced at the beginning of April. It selects two artists who live and work at LAGO MIO. The residency ends with a curated closing exhibition. Applications (motivation letter in English of ca. 2'500 characters) by 15 April 2019 to benedikt.wyss@me.com
