In 2007, the Residency Program was initiated at the Israeli Center for Digital Art. The program is open for artists, curators and contemporary art critics and enables residents to stay in Holon and carry out research and production in the context of the society and field of art in Israel.
To meet these ends, the center provides residents with studio space and accomodation in the city of Holon. Residents can stay for up to three months and have the benefit of a facilitated studio which includes computer, internet access, and access to the Video Archive and sound studio. Residents are welcomed to use the center’s additional equipment and varied archive materials.
The Residency Program is not limited to specific artistic media, but rather is based on the expectation that residents’ work will relate to or be influenced by their time in Israel. During their stay, residents should be available to take part in the programming of the Israeli Center for Digital Art. The possibility to exhibit work at the center is considered with the resident in each case during the time of the residency period.
The Residency Program collaborates with other international residency programs, which enables Israeli artists to participate in programs abroad, to make work connections, and altogether create a higher visibility of Israeli art internationally.
At this time, the residency program is run on an invitation basis only.
