Research and curatorial residency

In order to enrich research in moving images and to offer diverse perspectives on its collection, Vidéographe welcomes artists, researchers and curators for research and curatorial residencies. Through their residency, participants may explore a theme or an area of research, using our catalogue as a point of departure. Artists who integrate curating into their practice are equally invited to participate.

As part of this residency, we ask the selected person to develop a video program and write an essay. Vidéographe organizes a public screening of the programme along with a discussion and publishes the essay on Vithèque. Other activities can be organized if they serve the project.

One to two people are hosted each year. Successful applicants receive a flat fee of $2,000. Vidéographe also provides accompaniment in researching the catalogue, as well as access to our collection, and our workspaces.

Résidence LUX; creation and dissemination residency


LUX is a collaborative residency offered by Main FilmOBORO, PRIM and Vidéographe, and that supports the creation and dissemination of moving image-based artworks by artists from Quebec and Canada.

LUX provides digital and media artists the opportunity to create a new work with partner organizations’ support. Eligible projects include: single channel, installation, performance, and works using immersive or interactive new technologies.

Selected artists have access to technical and logistical support, the combined equipment pools of all four partner organizations, as well as professional promotion and dissemination services. Artists working with technologies or techniques that are unfamiliar, yet essential to their project’s realization, may also benefit from the guidance of experts. Vidéographe will disseminate and  promote the works produced through this residency. Support provided to each selected artist is valued at $32,000.

Residency dedicated to d/Deaf artists, researchers, and curators.

Because we are convinced that the field of moving images ought to be enriched through discourse and a plurality of perspectives, we have developed a research residency for d/Deaf artists, researchers, and curators.

We are proposing a flexible concept adaptable to the successful applicant’s needs. Artists may use this opportunity to carry out research that relates to a new work or that feeds their practice more generally. Researchers and curators are invited to explore a theme or an area of research using our catalogue as a point of departure. Participants may take a thematic, formal, or historical approach, and might focus on the work of one or more artists.

A public presentation is organized upon completion of the residency. This presentation is accompanied by a screening of the artist’s work or relevant works selected from our collection.

One residency is offered every two years. We offer $2,000 in honorarium, technical and artistic support, as well as access to our collection, equipment, and working space.

We thank SpillPropagation for helping to conceptualize this residency. The first occurrence of this project was supported by the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
