Project Proposal Residency is an artist residency project.
The purpose of the project is to give hospitality to Italian and international artists for a short/medium period and offer them accommodation and relations aimed to develop artistic researches both practical and theoretical. The residency is conceived as a meeting and work place where share ideas and experiences. The artists in residence will be asked to work on a project proposal which will be produced during their staying and to share it with The Blank. The project proposal will be presented at the conclusion of the residency during the Open Studio day.
