SOMA Summer 2015

Call for Application

SOMA Summer is a unique eight-week programme for international artists, curators, critics and art historians, conducted in English in Mexico City, Mexico (6 July – 28 August 2015). SOMA Summer is part of SOMA, an experimental pedagogical project launched in 2010, conceived to promote discussion and exchange in the field of contemporary art. Its goal is to produce a counterpoint to the dynamics of art schools, museums, and galleries.

SOMA Summer introduces participants to the dynamic art scene of Mexico City through visits to museums, openings, and artists' studios. Designed to promote intense creative work and open dialogue, the programme is built around a series of seminars and workshops led by renowned Mexican and international artists. Participants meet weekly for individual critiques with a variety of artists and curators. Activities are designed to promote intense creative work and artistic dialogue. SOMA is a space for reconsideration and reflection, where artists have the opportunity to critically analyze their work and to revisit their creative processes. All programme activities take place in English.

During SOMA Summer 2015, the programme will focus on the idea of excess and its relationship with contemporary art. Application deadline is 2 March 2015.
