realdmz

The DMZ Art Project, an annual exhibition project that takes place near the Demilitarized Zone in Korea, invites Korean and international artists to work in residence in a border town from April to October this year.

The residency program will take place in Yangji-ri in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province, a two- to three-hour drive from Seoul. Artists live for three to seven months at a remodeled house in the rural village to explore the meaning of the DMZ and related issues in the regional and broader context. The artists’ final works will be displayed during the annual DMZ Art Project exhibition in summer.

The residency is open to artists who are eligible to stay in Korea for the duration of the program. Foreign artists can only stay for three months.

Deadline for applications: 10 February 2016


Artists should submit their resumes, artist statements, portfolios and passport copies, by 5 p.m. on Feb. 10 to yangjiri.residency@gmail.com. For more information, visit www.realdmz.org.
