DATES  28 July - 9 August 2020

PROGRAM  an intensive residency designed for artists interested in combining equine studies and visual arts. We are looking for artists interested in horse culture, as well as riders interested in art. The work will include daily practice and lessons of horsemanship, horsearchery, anatomically correct riding. Discussions and lectures will be held with the main focus on fine art research and a focus on drawing. The program is running since 6 years in a series for years to come and is centered around different research themes. This summer we will focus again on drawing. We interpret contemporary drawing widely and we think of the process conceptually. Guest lecturers will be invited, excursions will be organised, works made can be exhibited. The language of the program is English.

AIM  to deliver our interest into the field of international artistic research with opening up connections between equine culture and art. We would like to rethink art today in relation to horsemanship and riding. We are open for artistic practices coming from both, western and eastern traditions.

FEE for a two-week program for international participants is 980 euros per person. We offer a grant for Hungarian artists and a 10% discount for returning participants. The fee includes all costs, but it does not include travel expenses.

APPLICATION  Please only apply if you are interested in both: art and equine studies, if you are happy to try rural living and if you are open for discussions with others. The application is free and the material can be sent via email. Please write an email of interest and for an application form to Beáta Veszely at info@horseandart.hu.

The application deadline is 15. February 2020. All applications will be carefully viewed and upto 10 people will be selected.
