Rejmyre Art LAB is pleased to announce a call for applications for a two-year residency program, beginning with an initial research visit in 2013 and culminating with a follow-up residency and public project in 2014. Application deadline is June 20.


Rejmyre Art LAB is an artist-run organization and a long-term, place-based research project that creates spaces for making, reflection and intensive exchange. Our activities include an international artist residency program, intensive post-graduate student workshops, a platform for experimental and conceptual glass projects in the Reijmyre Glasbruk, public seminars and an annual program of installations and interventions in and around the town of Rejmyre.

Rejmyre Art LAB's programming is born of a long term engagement with the town of Rejmyre in the Östergötland region of Sweden. Rejmyre is located amongst the forests and lakes two hours southwest of Stockholm. With a population of approximately 1000, Rejmyre is a small factory town centered around the Reijmyre Glasbruk, a glass factory founded in 1810 and still in operation.


Rejmyre Art LAB's residency program is run and constructed by artists in response to our own needs and changing modes of production. In the past we've referred to our residencies as 'hand built' to connote the sense of responsibility each resident takes for shaping the structure of the residency itself.

While many residency programs are rooted in notions of isolation, our emphasis is placed on engaging the local context of each residency as fuel and material for artistic development. Art LAB aims to support a wide range of contemporary artistic processes. Participants in our program create conceptual propositions, objects, and temporal works situated in public and private spaces. To support this range of work, we craft and maintain a network of local connections to facilitate social access and a mix of public and private studio spaces.

Our programs are made possible through the support of Finspångs kommun, Regionförbundet Östsam and IASPIS (International Artist Studio Program in Sweden).

To apply, send:
- a short bio
- a one-paragraph statement of interest
- link to work samples

Rejmyre Art LAB, through a collaboration with IASPIS [International Artist Studio Program in Sweden], provides selected artists with:

- RT travel from home country
- accommodation
- stipend for the residency period
- funding for a prior research visit

Application deadline: June 20
