Fundación Casa Wabi and ArtReview are pleased to announce an open-call residency prize for artists wishing to stay in Oaxaca for between one and three months during spring or autumn 2017. Applications must detail a project that engages with or benefits the local community in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
Based in Mexico, Fundación Casa Wabi is an interdisciplinary project whose mission is to promote the exchange of ideas, fostering an open and constructive dialogue between national and international artists in a variety of practices and disciplines. Casa Wabi is located near Puerto Escondido, on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, 800km south of Mexico City. Set between the mountains and the sea, the foundation and its grounds have been designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The facilities include a multipurpose room, six studio-dorms and a 50-acre sculpture garden.
