Training Program, Short Term Stay

5th of September to 21st of October 2016

Form and Medium: understanding the many possibilities of formats and tools in contemporary art

Short Term students with intermediate or advanced level often come to Metàfora in search of an Artist-in-Residence experience, where it is possible to dedicate long studio hours to an individual art-project in new and stimulating surroundings. We offer a dynamic environment with an international peer-group of dedicated aspiring artists. Apart from individual research and tutorials, a Short Term Stay on the Training program offers weekly lectures, intense debates and space for reflection on the personal practice of each student.
Depending on the previous experience and level, Short Term students are admitted to the 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of the Training Program.

Form and Medium: understanding the many possibilities of
formats and tools in contemporary art

This Axis of the Training Program focuses on the many possibilities of the materialization of art in different formats. The first steps of making ideas visible is primordial in all artistic practice. Understanding the diversity of formats that are available to the artist today is crucial in order to make decisions in our artistic process. Investigating how sculpture, performance, digital-art, drawing, painting, process art and social practices are all part of the spectrum of today’s art-world will be part of this studio block. We will inquire how artist have dealt with this process in the past and how the limits between disciplines have been re-invented and questioned.
