Fukuoka Asian Art Museum | call for artists, researchers, curators

Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (FAAM) announces the open call for “Visiting Artists, Researchers and Curators in Residence - Support Program 2017.” This program provides various supports for grant-aided artists from Asia and researchers/curators on Asian art who wish to produce artwork or conduct to research by staying in Fukuoka on their expenses.

The Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (FAAM) Support Program provides an opportunity for the artist from Asia and researcher/curator of Asian art to stay in Fukuoka for a certain period of time and supports their creative activities and researches.

Through the program, FAAM aims to contribute to the development of Asian art and to create a platform for art exchange in Asia. By implementing various art exchange programs such as collaborative art-making and workshops during their stay, FAAM also provides opportunities for the local communities to directly engage in art. We believe such opportunities will result in broadening and deepening the public understanding of Asian art, and thus cultivating the regional culture.
