We invite to apply artists-researchers who work with science and digital technologies. Artists have an opportunity to work in the studio, use laboratory and exhibit art works in our gallery.
For many years already RIXC has worked on the edges of art, science and digital technologies, actively developing collaborations in Baltic-Nordic region. By opening up new residencies and exhibition opportunities for artists, working with science and digital technologies, RIXC aims to support new knowledge creation and innovative artistic productions.
Through our residency programme and exhibition venue, we are sharing our resources – mediatheque, art-science lab, as well as our expertise and experience in organizing exhibitions, art events. We will be organizing meetings with artists and public, as well as with press and media, art critics and art students. For more specific needs, we are also making appointments with scientists from our partner universities and science institutes.
Artists have free access to WiFi internet, mediatheque as well as a space to work in a shared laboratory, which is equipped with digital production (Mac computers with graphic, video and sound editing software) and digital fabrication facilities (3D printer). For educational programme, workshops and/or exhibitions, RIXC offer a gallery space (36 m2 at Lencu iela 2, city center). RIXC also offers its expertise and assistance for the artists during their residency.
For single artist and/or artist couples, we offer residency apartment consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and working/guest room together with a kitchenette.
