Magnetic 3

Closing date:

Fluxus Art Projects

Artists based in the UK can apply now for a residency with CAPC Bordeaux as part of Fluxus Art Projects' scheme Magnetic.

Now in their third year, the Magnetic residencies are organised on a tandem basis, pairing a French region with a UK nation. The residencies are aimed at professional artists working in the field of visual arts who have already presented their work in several professional venues identified by contemporary art networks. 


The selection committee includes:

  • The director of the residency
  • A qualified personality in the cultural field in the region of the residency
  • The director of the tandem residency
  • A member of the artistic committee of Fluxus Art Projects
  • The Institut français du Royaume-Uni
  • A representative from the UK funding partners

Each residency will have its own selection committee.

Selection criteria

  • Artistic ambition within a professional practice rooted in contemporary visual arts
  • Relevance of the artist’s proposal within the residency’s context and focus
  • Motivation for an international residency at this point in the artist’s career

Please note that different access guidance applies to each residency host. Fluxus Art Projects offers a summary of each venue’s facilities and existing access arrangements, but is open to discussing any specific requirements: if you require access support at any stage of the application process, please contact Fluxus Art Projects.

The residency is fully funded and takes place from January to May 2025.
