2024 IRUDIKA RESIDENCES

"COMING SOON"

Irudika organises its Artistic Residencies with the aim of promoting artistic creation and cultural exchange at an international level. A professional jury will select two projects that will enjoy a stay of two and a half months with the aim of promoting creation in the specific field of illustration and graphic animation. These two people will be in charge of generating the image that will serve as Irudika's promotional poster and the animation that will act as the meeting's advertising short video.

The Residencies take place from March to May, with a stay in three creative centres between Angouleme (France), Zapopan and Guadalajara (Mexico) and Bilbao (Basque Country). The residency ends with an exhibition in Vitoria-Gasteiz, where the work carried out by the two resident artists during their stay will be exhibited.

Irudika, with the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), Fundación Vital Fundazioa and in collaboration with Fundación BilbaoArte Fundazioa, the Cité Internationale de la Bande Dessinée et de l'Image d' Angouléme-France, the Government of Guadalajara - Guadalajara World Book Capital - Cultura Guadalajara (Mexico) and La Casa del Autor de Zapopan (Mexico), is launching this call aimed at illustration and graphic animation professionals.

In 2023, the selected artists were Dani Scharf, in the illustration category, and Blanca A. Izuzquiza, in the animation category.The work developed by both artists during the 2023 Residencies, between March, April and May, has a strong social component. Dani Scharf presents his project 'Good Fake News', which focuses on information intoxication and how the concept of fake news can be used in a positive way.

Using a newspaper format, Scharf illustrates news items that address universal income, climate change, migration, and gender equality, among others. A total of 20 pages that will be exhibited through his originals and the entire work process of the Uruguayan illustrator. Blanca A. Izuzquiza will exhibit her animated short film 'What are you thinking about?' in which she immerses us in the problem of mental health in adolescence. The animation was made digitally, but in the exhibition, we will see still images of the animation as well as parts of the process and the author's workbooks. Blanca has also made stickers with everyday terms and clay figures that are included in the exhibition.
