Located in Marfa, Texas, USA, this unique platform is intended for emerging artists and researchers whose projects require immersion into the specific environment of Marfa town and Texas territory, necessitating movement through geography as well as time and space for the purposes of specific research work.
Residents are selected on the basis of a research project in direct relationship with the context, through all its material, historical as well as political dimensions. The thematic focus for 2014 is: « borders ». On 6 candidates chosen, 3 are alumni from HEAD Genève and/or les Beaux-Arts de Nantes.
