Meet the awarded professionals of the StayHome Curatorial Online Residency.
Funded by OCA – Office for Contemporary Art Norway
We are delighted to announce the names of the 3 contemporary art professionals residing in Norway awarded to take part in CIMAM’s StayHome Curatorial Online Residency generously funded by OCA – Office for Contemporary Art Norway.
Through this residency selected candidates will further develop their research projects and benefit from the mentoring of a member of the CIMAM Board, Malgorzata Ludwisiak, Saskia Bos, and Agustín Pérez Rubio. The residency will provide unique relevant networking and exchange opportunities.
Selected candidates will receive an honorarium of 900 € in 2020 in addition to being awarded a travel grant to attend next year’s CIMAM Annual Conference in Poland (November 5 – 7, 2021).
Susanne Hætta: “I would like to investigate early Sámi photographers (before 1975), that pointed their lenses towards their own people and culture. This grant gives me the possibility to start researching, for the benefit of the Sámi community, both artists and others”.
Nicole Rafiki: “I am currently building Rafiki Art Initiatives (RAI) organizational structure, skills, and programming. I will research how to further develop and adapt a collective art project that we initiated in the summer of 2020, following the death of George Floyd, to the 10 year memorial of the twin terror attacks in Norway on 22 July 2011”.
Inger Emilie Solheim: “I curate exhibitions in a relatively remote subarctic area of Northern Norway populated by Norwegians, Samis and Kvens, and continously exploring the northern, non-urban, mixed-origin identity”.
In early 2021 CIMAM will make public the resulting materials from this online curatorial residency in two formats, a written essay or article, and a video recording.
