M not only shows art, it also gives emerging artists the chance to create new work in the best conditions and with expert guidance. M-residence is the name of the project. But how does it work?
What is an M-residency?
Every year, M aims to offer a residency to several emerging artists. At least one of them must have a link with Leuven. The focus is on visual art and, by extension, performance.
A residency generally lasts three months. The first month is mainly devoted to reflection and the drawing up of a project proposal. Once that is ready, M looks at how it can support the creation of the new work: offering technical support, drawing up a project plan and a budget together with the artist, inviting a curator to talk about the work... In short, everything the artist needs to be able to work in peace and surrounded by others.
The residency usually ends with an exhibition.
... and who will be next?
