The Residency will be curated by independent curator Ms Naomi Hennig (Berlin, see CV), who will lead a group of 8 artists, 4 Cypriot artists to be selected by the curator through this Open Call, and another 4 European artists to be invited. Cypriot artists have until the the 6th of November 2016, to apply and will be notified of the selection by the 10th November 2016.

EMAA and Rooftop present the artistic outcome of this first residency in the ‘Stimulating Synapse’ exhibition, with the works of the participating artists Carl Michael von Hausswolff (Sweden), Ana Elizabet (Croatia), Paul Devens (Netherlands), Erhan Oze (Cypriot) and Eleni Phyla (Cypriot), who have all also agreed to donate these works of art to EMAA, giving a further chance to this exhibition to be hosted in other cities of the island..
As the Croatian curator Branko Franceschi says:
“The group of European and Cypriot artists at the end created an ambience, consisting of long term projects, project proposals, web platform, interactive, participatory art works and sound installations that reflect present division and hopes with vigor, vision and humor.”
