 ‘Summer Sessions’ are short-term residencies for young and emerging artists, organized by an international network of cultural organizations. Each summer, the partners that participate in this network for talent development collaborate to offer professional production support and expert feedback to artists in the realization of a new artwork or design. Local talents from each partner’s geographic region are scouted and selected for a residency abroad, where they are offered highly productive atmospheres and specific kinds of expertise at one of the international partners in the international network. While the pop-up exhibition illustrates the kind of results that this pressure cooker residency format results in, a live event will highlight the experiences that participants have had abroad, and the effects these experiences had on their early careers.

The Summer Sessions pop-up exhibition at Festival Ars Electronica 2016 shows a selection of outcomes realized through the Summer Sessions residencies, an international exchange of emerging talents. While the pop-up exhibition illustrates the kind of results that this pressure cooker residency format results in, a live event will highlight the experiences that participants have had abroad, and the effects these experiences had on their early careers. By doing so, V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, the initiating partner of the Summer Sessions network, intends to inform ambitious early-career artist about the opportunities that the international network for talent development offers and reaches out to other cultural organizations with an invitation to join the network. Furthermore, the pop-up exhibition introduces the Festival Ars Electronica audience to a selection of promising emerging Dutch artists that participated in the network. The event will be closed with an informal drink to continue the conversation on the opportunities for young artists and cultural organizations within the Summer Sessions network for talent development. 

This event will also form a meeting point to discuss how to strategically further develop these international opportunities for emerging and young professionals amongst past and present partners of the network. The partners that participate in the 2016 edition of the Summer Sessions include Chronus Art Center (China), the National University of Tres de Febrero (Argentina), the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan), PNEK (Norway), iMAL (Belgium), Arquivo 237 (Portugal), Kitchen Budapest (Hungary), Metamedia Association (Croatia), Interactive Media Design Lab, NAIST (Japan) and V2_ Instituut for the Unstable Media (The Netherlands).

‘Summer Sessions’ are short-term residencies for young and emerging artists, organized by an international network of cultural organizations. Each summer, the partners that participate in this network for talent development collaborate to offer professional production support and expert feedback to artists in the realization of a new artwork or design. Local talents from each partner’s geographic region are scouted and selected for a residency abroad, where they are offered highly productive atmospheres and specific kinds of expertise at one of the international partners in the international network. This collaboration does not only result in the development of a large number of new projects in a relatively short period, but also provides the participating emerging artists with an international experience that helps them jumpstart their art and design practice.
