4th MUA call for art creation and research residencies

Alicante, 10 May 2018
Translated by: Jose D. Losada Lorenzo

The University of Alicante announces, through the University of Alicante Museum (MUA),  the 4th edition of the 'PLUS' programme for residences of contemporary art creation and research. Its objective is to support, promote and spread the artistic-cultural creation and investigation as well as transmitting it to the people.

In this public call, five resident or collective artists of any age and nationality will be selected to carry out an artistic project (in different disciplines such as painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video art, installation, etc.) within the UA Museum premises, turning the museum into a multidisciplinary space for creation and research. The projects will be carried out respecting the spaces and the daily dynamics of the museum.
The residencies are complemented with a training course based on workshops for the artists about different cultural agents in order to promote the career and projection of artist.
Each artist will receive €400 for conducting their projects. Furthermore, a €750 grant for accommodation and half-board will be offered for only one artist, who does not reside in the city nor the surrounding towns. The residents commit to having completed the project at the end of the residency and the MUA commits to exhibiting those works in a collective exhibition in September, with an extensive programme of guided tours addresed at the general public and a digital catalogue with ISBN for the dissemination of the projects and the promotion of the artists.
Those interested must send one single project in PDF to the e-mail address '' not exceeding 10 Mbwith full information of the project to be carried out (description, sketches, photographs...), previous works, CV, personal data of the artist or group, indicating whether you request the travel and accommodation grant. The deadline will be 10 June 2018.
