About the residency
Initiated by an artist and an art historian NAKED HEAD is established with an idea to enrich the Serbian contemporary art scene and cultural life with a relevant residency program welcoming a constant flow of international artists and art professionals. The goal is to experience the rural and urban environment using the capacity of local communities in order to create a unique and strong platform for permanent exchange and networking.
In a rural setting guest residents will have an opportunity to devote themselves to work and contemplation in a pleasant and isolated atmosphere, located in beautiful natural setting. Experiencing the vivid cultural life of Belgrade will bring an opportunity for visitors to forge professional connections and present a public program at the Remont Gallery. The Remont curatorial team will give professional support during this stay including visits to local exhibition spaces, organization of meetings with artists, curators, art professionals, providing necessary technical support and PR activities for artist talks, presentations, lectures or eventual exhibition.
Set in the village of Gola Glava (literal translation: Naked Head), 80 km west from Belgrade, the residency provides an authentic Serbian house (50 square meters) with equipped kitchen with a beautiful garden and landscape. Artists are allowed to use the swimming pool, organic garden for food and fresh spring water located on a private property. All services and facilities are provided within the collaboration with local inhabitants.
During the stay in Belgrade, the accommodation will be located in an apartment in the city center
