This four-week residency in Malmö, Sweden is an unprecedented opportunity for artists working in print media and sculpture.

WSW has initiated a studio residency exchange with two not-for-profit collaborative workspaces: KKV Grafik Studio and Sculpture Workshop Monumental. Artists can choose to work in one or both studios, depending on their projects. Orientation to each studio is provided, however selected artists must be able to work independently and be familiar with the printmaking and/or sculpture processes they’ll be utilizing. Additional charges may apply if the selected artist needs professional assistance.

Both studios are located in the same building, and artists have 24-hour access to the facilities. Housing is provided in the building’s Sculpture studio section. Artists will pay travel costs, food, and materials.

The KKV Grafik Studio is a 3,000 sq/ft printmaking studio, professionally equipped for intaglio, silkscreen, lithography, and letterpress printing. The open space layout encourages dialogue and the cross-pollination of ideas. A small private workspace for preparatory work is also available. The Malmö KKV Grafik Studio was founded in 1973 and is self-governed by its 125 members, all of whom are artists. The municipality of Malmö is the fiscal sponsor of the workshop facility.

KKV Sculpture Workshop Monumental is a 10,000 sq/ft professional studio for woodworking, pottery, enamel, glass art, metal casting, metalworking, and model making. The Sculpture Workshop Monumental was established in 1973 as a foundation. Today, its members include about 300 artists and friends.
