Nida Art Colony of the Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) welcomes proposals from emerging and experienced artists, designers, architects, curators and art researchers/writers/philosophers for its upcoming (2014-2015) remote residencies on the Baltic Sea coast in the Curonian Spit National Park, Lithuania.
Yesterday, December 16, all present inhabitants of Nida Art Colony went to Palanga to see off Dutch artist Theun Karelse (NL), a resident of Techno-ecologies program who stayed in the Colony from November to the middle of December. As a result of his residence, Theun published a blog “TechnoEcologies” where he pointed and shortly described his insights, ideas, discoveries, meetings with local specialists, implemented actions, information sources, spotted animals and lichens, experiences of local weather and landscape, etc. To learn more about Theun’s residency at NAC please browse the website of his blog.
Although snow is rarely seen in Nida and frost doesn't bite our noses yet, a calendar constantly reminds – holidays are coming. Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve... and then, look, summer is here! Nida Art Colony continues its tradition of film screening on Thursdays – on the 19th of December at 6.00 pm everyone is invited for the pre-Christmas film evening at NAC. What will be on screen?
Snowflakes and dreams - all different, all perfect. Warmest greetings from Nida!
On December 20th the colonists made a surprise for local animals - they went to Parnidis dune to decorate the Christmas tree with carrots, apples, radish (photos).
Although it's lazy Christmas time, we in Nida Art Colony never stop. Would you?
For the upcoming six Thursdays, starting with the second day of Christmas, 26th of December, we've invited Meno Avilys to present a program of their choice to the colonists and all those in Nida who appreciate good film.
"Don't Look Now", directed by Nicolas Roeg (1973), is an independent British - Italian film, which is usually described as an occult thriller, but it certainly transgresses the conventions of the genre, concentrating on the psychology of grief.
More info in Lithuanian website version.
This Thursday, January the 16th, at 6:00 pm VAA Nida Art Colony invites you to one more film evening. This time on screen – quirky Portuguese comedy "Recollections of the Yellow House" by João César Monteiro.
In the very end of 2013 most of Nida Art Colony studios were left epmty. But…good news! The New Year has brought to NAC a new intern Natacha Paganelli and four new residents – Sanna Marander and Niklas Tafra from Sweden, Rodrigo RSM from Mexico (currently studying in Estonia) and Kalin Lindena from Germany. Besides these four newcomers, two residents – Maricel Delgado (Peru) and Luisa Nobrega (BR) – continue their residence until the end of January 2014.
