Barim seeks international artists to join our residency program.

This year, Barim would like to invite research-based contemporary artists in all genres such as visual art, performing art, curatorial, film, design, research, music, critic, and more. Since the period of the residency is rather short (1 month and half), we would like to invite artists who can utilize specific timeline and space to pursue research and practice rather than the quality of final work and detailed development of previous works. We would like to share your research theme, process, and your artistic answers to it with fellow artists and audience.

This residency will be held with the residency program for Koreans, thus international artists will live and work with local artists.


BARIM is a cross-genre collective of artists who are based in Gwangju, currently a media space, working studio, and open art district in Gwangju, Korea. Opens in Spring 2014, from abstract to physical genres of the arts.
