VIGGO FORTING MEMORIAL AND TRAVEL GRANT
The receiver of the Grant 2021 is ESTELLE LACOMBE
From Sunday 9 May 2021, you will be able to see a small Viggo Forting exhibition at FGV. A small collection of surviving works is displayed: Aquatinte, etchings and personalia. In this connection, at 17.17 will be awarded the annual travel grant.
“I am very touched and very honored to receive the Viggo grant, it’s a beautiful news. It warms my heart to know that in Odense I am supported in my artistic research and I warmly thank the jury”, siger Estelle.
From the 9th of May we have a small exhibition of Viggo Fortings prints.
IN FROM THE MARGINS
The Funen Printmaking Studio are delighted to announce they have been selected for Creative Europe funding to support the forthcoming project, In from the Margins.
In from the Margins is a three-year programme working with artists with experience of displacement; exchanges of their work; and engagement with refugees, schools and wider communities.
This project will create Europe’s first network of Studios of Sanctuary, offering opportunities for 30 artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds to take up supported residencies in internationally recognised print studios: Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland; Cork Printmakers, Ireland; AGA Lab, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense, Denmark; and the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
These organisations all have a strong history of social engagement, based in multi-cultural cities on the margins of Europe, either on coastal fringes or in the far East of Europe.
This project will bring the work of refugee and migrant artists ‘in from the margins’ to mainstream programming and look for ways to explore and celebrate cultures and artistic traditions which are marginalised by the Western artistic canon.
In from the Margins emerged from discussions from a previous collaboration between the partners – all print studios with civic aims – supported by British Council, Creative Scotland and The City Council of Odense.
