Posted by on Monday, 8 November, 2010 at 9:28 PM. Filed under: News

Rimbun Dahan is currently accepting applications from visual artists for residencies at Hotel Penaga in Georgetown, Penang, for 2011.

Hotel Penaga is a luxury boutique hotel in Georgetown, Penang which is due to open in January 2011. It is intended to support ongoing activities at Rimbun Dahan, and also to develop its own arts residency program. For more information, see the Hotel Penaga website.

The duration of the residency is between 1 and 3 months, depending on the strength of the proposal.

The residency will provide:

  • A room in Hotel Penaga and breakfast at the hotel for the duration of the stay
  • Studio space in Georgetown
  • Living and materials allowance of RM 1,000 per month
  • Air fare (for Southeast Asian artists)

The artist is expected to:

  • Actively produce work
  • Host open studio evenings several times a week to interact with hotel guests and develop a broader appreciation of the artist’s practice
  • Contribute at least one work created during the course of the residency to the permanent collection of Hotel Penaga

This residency is available only for artists from Southeast Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Brunei, Vietnam, Burma, Laos and Cambodia) and Australia. Artists who have previously been resident at Rimbun Dahan are eligible to apply.

Visas for international artists are the responsibility of the artist.

Applications are accepted for these residencies throughout the year.
