The Artist-in-Residence Program is one of the strategic projects of the Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art. It was first introduced at the 2nd Biennial in 2012, and since then, 20 artists from 9 countries hosted by the Program have produced more than 30 art-objects.
Thе Program is focused on fostering interaction between contemporary artists and operational, regional industrial factories. This approach distinguishes our Artist-in-Residence Program from many others around the world. Residencies result in site-specific artworks created for the hosting city or enterprise. Artworks created as part of the Program will be presented at an exhibition, which opens alongside the main project at the Biennial's main venue.
