RED Flamingo is looking for site-specific, in situ and other projects or exhibition ideas to be realised within our new project space, during the upcoming 2022 residency season.

What kind of exhibition projects do we have in mind?

We offer you a kind of white cube environment, which you can transform or use according to your creative vision. We encourage you to think spatially; use the walls, ceiling, and floor as part of your artwork. Yes, they can be painted, etc. to set up a comprehensive environment and/or experience for the audience.

There are no limitations in regard to medium, theme, or subject. Our only condition for the selected exhibition is that it takes into account the specifics of our exhibition space.

However, at the time of application, your idea/vision doesn’t need to be completely developed. The candidates will be selected based on their previous work and the potential of their proposed (project) idea. 

Gallery space details:

WIDTH:  3 m / 9.8 ft
LENGTH: 5 m / 16.4 ft
HEIGHT: 2,05 m / 7.5 ft

white, drywall/plasterboard walls, no window (one end of the space is the door, but if needed can also be used as a wall surface, as there is drywall/plasterboard mounted onto it ); gallery plan


All other details below:

Do I have to bring finished work or can I produce works at the location?
Setting up an exhibition project at Red Flamingo should be considered as a residency opportunity. You can apply for a two or four weeks stay, which should provide enough time for you to finish up your project idea. The residency will end with a public presentation of your work.

You can of course also bring finished work(s), but at your own expense and responsibility.

How long can I stay?
2 or 4 weeks; the selected period should provide enough time for you to finish up your project idea. The residency will end with a public presentation of your work.

You can of course also bring finished work(s), but at your own expense and responsibility.

Can we come as an artist duo (or group)?
Yes and no.

Due to a limited accommodation space we do welcome applications from artists duos, but not of larger groups. Unless you are willing to take care of your accommodation.

Your plus one is charged 180 EUR per week. The residency fee for larger groups will be adjusted accordingly. Send us an email enquiry.

Where will I work?
RED Flamingo guests are expected to work in situ at the provided gallery space, but will of course have access if needed, to all other facilities ie. the studio.

What if by the time of arrival I change my mind regarding the proposed exhibition idea?
Sure we are aware that time and other experiences can influence your initial exhibition plan. You might also be inspired by the place itself, or similar.

Adapting or changing your idea to the new reality is definitely possible. However, all changes should be discussed and agreed on with D’CLINIC curator.

Is there a participation fee?
The 2022 Red Flamingo residency spot comes with a max. 270 Euro participation fee per week.

What is included in the fee?
Besides technical assistance on your project set up, opening reception, media promotion, exhibition photos;
all guest artists are provided with accommodation, 24/7 studio, towels and linens, housekeeping service, a shared kitchen, bicycle, and wireless internet.
Are there any additional programs or expectations toward the artists?
Each residency at D’CLINIC starts with an art-dinner followed by a “meet the new artist” event, organised at the studio or one of our partner institutions; here artists are asked to share (have a presentation) their artistic practice with the peer group and others interested. The talk is also being live-streamed.
