    With the artist residency Terra Incógnita, the Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center invites artists to look at the Azorean islands from a 21st century perspective; to rediscover this territory through art.

    We invite three artists to live and work for one month in one of these islands: São Miguel, Terceira, and Flores.

    The selected artists should produce artistic work using the historical, social, cultural, economic, and geographic context of the islands as reference. The Contemporary Art Center will provide some information contextualizing the islands, which can be used as the starting point for the artist’s research during his or her residency.

    The artist residency Terra Incógnita aims to produce a series of artistic works that will integrate an exhibition at the Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center in June 2017.
    The Museu Carlos Machado is the cultural, scientific and artistic partner of this Artistic Residency. The Museum opened its doors for the first time in 1880 and “combining our ages we assure continuity between past and future.”

    Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center has invited the international curator Carolina Grau to produce this Residency with our Contemporary Art Center. Carolina Grau will integrate the selection jury and curate the exhibition Terra Incógnita.
