Black Rock Senegal Artists Residency 2020 application cycle opens for Year 2
Black Rock Senegal artist residency application cycle for Year 2 is open between 5–31 August 2020 to artists of all mediums and all nationalities.
Black Rock Senegal was founded in 2019 by African-American artist Kehinde Wiley. Over the last year the residency has welcomed 15 artists from 4 continents working in film, literature, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and textiles. Taking its physical location as a point of departure, Black Rock's mission is to support new artistic creation through collaborative exchange and to incite change in the global discourse about Africa.
As of July 2020, Senegal has re-opened its borders to international travel. Black Rock anticipates welcoming its Year 2 class of residents in Autumn 2020, however further information will be made available according to continued international safety guidelines relating to the spread of COVID-19.
