Open Call for Landscape Expanded: One month residency program for artists in Kuwait
Contemporary Art Platform and the British Council Kuwait, in partnership with the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters, are pleased to announce ” Landscapes Expanded”, a one month residency programme that aims to support artists from different backgrounds to explore landscape art in their ow practice.
The residency program is part of the “Out of Britain” exhibition that will be held at CAP from 17 September 2012 − 25 October 2012. It explores hundred years of British landscape and examines the ways in which artists have engaged with landscape and addressed timeless and fundamental questions about man’s place in the world.
The works in the show illustrate individual artist’s attempts to find their place amongst an ever-changing environment where they are often driven to challenge traditional ways of interpreting and framing the landscape.
