ROVAS ACADEMY’S SUMMER RESIDENCIES (06.07.2018-04.09.2018)

Our summer residencies are the best opportunities to cleverly use your free time. While being on a holiday you can have a unique experience on the fields of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography or graphic design. You can get new acquaintances with artists and non-artists alike. You can create artworks alongside, and with the help of masters of your chosen art field.

Our motto is: Understanding each other: We understand – Értjük egymást – Rozumieme si – Ne intelegem!

 

In addition to giving you the opportunity to work in the studios, or outside; we arrange leisure activities, excursions, museum, studio and gallery visits. At the evenings planned presentations and artist’s talks will take place, as well as informal gatherings with dance and music.

 

For more serious thinkers it is a great opportunity to confront and discuss different views, theories and values in a friendly environment; to meet and exchange ideas with representatives of the Eastern-European art world.

 

The Rovas Academy’s summer residencies are master camps, in which the art masters’ students are welcome too.

We have been organising summer art camps since 1994 and master camps since 2009. We think they are simply great! We do not only enjoy them but also believe in them at such an extent that we arrange our summer holidays accordingly ever since the beginnings.

 

The Rovas Academy’s Summer Residencies are open to all. Professional artists, master and BA students are all welcome as well as art lovers, who rather enjoy watching art and creation than doing it themselves. You can join only one or all of the art camps – but with the exception of invited artists everyone has to apply. The residency is an opportunity for artists to confront new ideas or experiment with their work.

The main supporter of our art residencies’ is the Research Institute for National Strategy (NSKI).

During our residencies fine and applied artists, theorists and students from Transylvania (Erdély), Hungary, Transcarpathia (Kárpátalja), Vojvodina (Délvidék) and Upper Hungary (Felvidék) work and enjoy their free time together. Our residencies are master camps to which every invited artist can delegate one more artist or student, whose participation will be based on the decision of the Artist’s Committee. For this a submitted portfolio is needed.

Each participant has to contribute to the evening programmes. We are open to new ideas, but the most common options are:

- music on own instrument (e.g. by campfire)

- lecture on an art related topic

- roundtable/moderated discussion

- film screening

- artistic presentations (portfolio, animations, etc.)

- planned excursion (to a gallery or any local art venue)

 

ABOUT ROVAS:

Rovas Civil Organisation was established in 1999, though it has been functioning as a fine art group since 1994.

Their mission is to generate intellectual values in their society by taking active part in the field of fine arts and culture.

The members of Rovas consider their own education and intellectual progress as their purpose of life. They believe that continuously widening their knowledge and improving their perception of life will positively contribute to other’s existence.

Rovas, with its activities, targets intellectuals regardless if they believe in the golden age or fascinated by contemporary art and values. They draw a definite line between pure creativity and the effects of cultural mass production.

 

Rovas’s trilingual internet magazine has started its online presence in 2004 and is constantly updated and evolving (www.rovart.sk) - ISSN 1337-7167.

In 2010 Rovas won the building by tender, where sculptor Béla Löffler was born. Here they could fully realize their goals and ideas. As a next step, the Rovas Free Academy was established in the building complex. Also in 2010, the association received the Pro Cultura Hungarica Award.

The members of Rovas are focusing primarily on professionalism and achieving high artistic standards. In order to pass all their knowledge and experience to the younger generation in 2013 they have established the Evening School of Free Fine Art, focusing mainly on talent management. In 2018 it will be transformed into a fine art private school.

In 2015 Rovas received a Hungarian Quality Product Award for its intellectual and artistic activities.

In 2016 it received Kassa County’s special prize for its talent management programme.

In 2017 Rovas received a medal from the mayor of the Old Town of Kassa, for the association′s work towards the positive development of Slovak-Hungarian relations.

In 2017 Rovas opened both the MaJel Center and the FiguratiF Gallery on Erzsébet street, Kassa.

In 2018 Rovas founded the Löffler Art Residency.
