red-flamingo


Do you have an exciting project idea?

In addition to our well-established residency programmes, we are about to launch an alternative exhibition platform – from June 2021 – called Red Flamingo; aiming to discover and promote experimental and progressive ideas within contemporary art.

murals,
video art,
sound art,
text art,
idea based art,
performance,
participatory art,
artistic interventions,
 … all welcome!
Painting and other visual art forms are also NOT excluded!

We are looking for short-term, site-specific, in situ and other projects or exhibition ideas to be realised within our new project space, during the upcoming residency season.

Our only condition for the selected exhibition is that it takes into account the specifics of our exhibition space. We encourage you to think spatially. Paint the walls (red) if you need to; set up an environment, an experience for the audience. (However, our curator can help you with the development of your idea.)

Gallery details:

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

of white, drywall space, no window (one end of the space is the doors, but if needed can also be used as wall surface); 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/party of your work.
You can of course also bring finished work(s), but at your own expense and responsibility.
Can I come with a friend?
You can / you should!
Red Flamingo exhibition programme gives you the opportunity to be accompanied by your friend, boyfriend/girlfriend, co-worker, assistant, spouse, sibling … or another artist, to share the costs and/or work etc.
However, individual applicants will not be rejected. Or you can ask for a ‘random collaborator’.
What if I don’t have anyone to join me, but I’d like the option of sharing costs etc.?
No worries, in this case, you can choose the option of a ‘random collaborator’, and agree to be paired up with another artist who chooses the same option in their application. This will give you an opportunity to be challenged and work collaboratively during your stay at D’CLINIC (similar to our MiXER program).
I choose the option of “random collaborator”, do I still have to propose a project idea?
No, but you should specify the artistic area you are working in, so we can pair you up with a suitable candidate.
Is there a participation fee?
The 2021 Red Flamingo residency spot comes with a 700 Euro participation fee per two weeks. But since the residency spot can accommodate two individuals, the fee can be shared with another artist, friend, co-worker, spouse… or a random collaborator. If applying as an individual artist the total fee is your responsibility.
For other details regarding the residency fee click here!
What is included in the fee?
Besides technical assistance on your project set up, opening reception, media promotion, professional event photos; all guest artists are provided with accommodation, towels and linens, housekeeping service, a shared kitchen, yard/terrace, bicycle, and wireless internet.
Can I apply for a discount?
Kind of; Artists with confirmed participation will get access to participate in our fundraiser campaign to help them fund the required residency fee. (Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the campaign will be a success)
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 one of our partner institutions; here artists are asked to share (have a presentation) their artistic practice with the peer group and others interested.
What is the Red Flamingo award?
Amongst the realised exhibition projects, one will be awarded a free residency spot for the next season. This awarded spot, however, is for an artist of your choice; meaning you can recommend/enable someone from your network to develop a project at Red Flamingo during the upcoming 2022 residency season.
