La Becque, La Tour-de-Peilz

Announcement of our year-long partnership with artist residency La Becque, in la Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland.

ECAL is pleased to announce its partnership with La Becque, the newly launched artist residency located on the beautiful shores of Lake Geneva, between Lausanne and Montreux. The first joint venture between the artist residency and an art and design school, the ECAL x La Becque initiative aims at fostering research projects and promoting excellence in art and design education.

The collaboration will start in February 2019 with the first ECAL Residence at La Becque featuring Mitch Paone, partner and creative director at renowned Brooklyn-based creative design agency DIA Studio. Specialized in kinetic identity systems, graphic design and typography, Mitch Paone will spend four months at La Becque developing his own research project while guest lecturing during the entire spring semester at ECAL, in the Bachelor Graphic Design and Master Type Design programmes. The next guest resident will be invited in fall 2019, for a residency spanning the entire semester.

Additionally, ECAL will offer its alumni the opportunity to apply for a summer residency at La Becque, with the EXECAL Residence at La Becque. Between July and September 2019, three ECAL alumni will be selected to each partake in a month-long residency, developing their practice while exploring the intersection of nature and technology, the current thematical focus of La Becque.

More information on the call for applications for the EXECAL Residence at La Becque will be announced early December. Stay tuned!
