KAOS Festival of Contemporary Collage in Kranj, Slovenia announces the Year of Collage
Collage artists are invited to join KAOS for a 2020 artist residency. They write, “When there is no KAOS in Kranj, the sky over the Alps has only two colours–blue and grey. But collage paints the town into all the colours of the world (and maybe also of some new world) and changes it forever.” This is why they are inviting collage artists to become part of a venture to transform Kranj into a city of collage. The Layer House offers living and working spaces for artists and the artist residency can end with an exhibition, if desired. Collage artists taking part are encouraged to work directly on the Layer House’s and the city’s walls to leave a permanent artwork.
Applications are open until all the available places are filled. The Year of Collage is a program of the Carnica Institute, the organizer of KAOS, and receives no public funding. For a reasonable fee, residents stay in a fully-equipped studio apartment in the Layer House with access to a 20-square-meter studio on the ground floor for up to four weeks. The residencies take place from January to December 2020. To learn details and to apply, visit www.layer.si/kaos/en/air2020/.
