EXTENDED DEADLINE Rare Exports 1 Residency

We’ve extended the deadline for our Rare Exports Residency Open Call to give as many artists as possible the chance to avail of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Tailored especially for emerging artists this is an exclusive chance to highlight your practice on an international stage.


126 Artist- run Gallery, in partnership with AmistadeLab, invites applications from emerging artists within its membership for the first phase of the Rare Exports exchange program: Rare Exports #1 Quadraro international art lab, a one month residency in Italy*. You will work in Rome in the historic Quadraro neighbourhood, in order to produce a piece of work engaging with the local community. The neighbourhood, 15 minutes from the center of Rome, is known for its vibrant artistic and cultural scene as well as for its historical heritage. Especially in the last years it has been the focus of massive artistic regeneration, exemplified by the massive pieces of Urban art that characterize the area.

The residency will take place from 10 May to 10 June 2016

Our selected artist will receive: a travel bursary, studio and accommodation costs covered by 126 and bursary of 400 Euros towards day-to-day expenses. During the residency you will be connected with an exclusive network of curators, writers, artists and archaeologists in order to develop new work inspired by this diverse area on the outskirts of Rome.
