A Residency and a Prize for Artist Aleksandra Kalisz
2017 has been quite generous to Aleksandra Kalisz (FA16).
Kalisz was selected for the Dar Slimane artist residency in Morocco, which seeks “artists that find pleasure engaging in a holistic inspired approach with a respect for nature, animals and sustainable living.” After arriving in Marrakesh for the residency, Kalisz wrote on her Facebook page that she “will be working... on new pieces and [is] already feeling inspired.” She will be in Marrakesh for the next month.
Kalisz was also accepted for the NordArt Prize in Büdelsdorf, Germany—one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe. Kalisz is one of over 200 international artists—out of 3,682 applicants—selected by a jury to present “a comprehensive panorama of contemporary art.” The exhibition runs from June 10 to October 8 of this year, and if you're a resident of Germany, or find yourself there, you can find directions to the exhibition here.
From December 2016 to February of this year, Kalisz was also featured at the Gdańska Galeria Miejska’s Gdańsk Biennial of Art.
