MOCT Foundation Residency

MOCT Contemporary Russia, Arts Foundation is a non-profit foundation set up to encourage the advancement of contemporary Russian arts beyond its borders, and to support young artists at the crucial stages in their career.

MOCT Arts Foundation and Acme are working in partnership to provide a three month long residency based in east London at Acme’s work/live artist residency building, the Fire Station. The residency is offered to Russian artists with exceptional promise who would benefit from international experience and connections, and who do not have the means to access a similar opportunity without the support of Acme or MOCT Arts Foundation. Application and shortlisting is undertaken Winzavod Centre for Contemporary Art, Russia. Interview and final selection is undertaken by Acme.
