ARCUS artist-in-resident project IBARAKI : JAPAN

Artist-in-residence program of ARCUS Project which aims to support the artistic activities of emerging artists was launched in 1994 by Ibaraki Prefectural Government as its main organizer. In its 20 years history, ARCUS has invited 88 artists from 29 countries / regions, and supported their artistic projects and researches during the residence. A number of previous residency artists are now known as cutting- edge artists in the international art scene. ARCUS Project artist-in-residence program has focused more on the “process” of activities.

The residency is looking for a project which does not regard final presentation as a goal, but tries to conduct a site-specific research / project within a certain period of time. It is also expected that the research / project is open to public for sharing the process and collaboration. The proposed projects are supposed to be temporary works with which the applied area can be returned to its original state.

Eligible candidates shall be be emerging artists engaged in contemporary visual arts or other related fields and from any countries but Japan.

Among other cost, the round air ticket to Japan is covered.

Deadline for applications: 30 April 2016.
