Hof - Surface Arts residency space opens in Bangkok


A brand new collaboration between HOF Art and Surface Arts presents an exciting residency program in the heart of Bangkok’s budding art district. This is a contemporary art residency, artists pay a residency fee and no travel expenses are available.

Please note: organisers informed that this residency is currently closed to applications (updated April 2017)

Surface Arts and HOF ART bring artists together from around the world to concentrate on using collaborative practice to generate new work and new audiences. We aim to support the production of ideas and art works to develop understanding between cultures.

Our space is in the hip Sukhumvit area and is a focal point for both emerging and established artists, providing a space for exhibitions and events with two galleries and a café bar. We also have ten studio spaces, along with our resident accommodation, rooftop kitchen and social space.

The artists we accept are contemporary artists with an interest or practice in collaboration. Successful artists are chosen on the basis of quality and innovation of work, potential benefits to the applicants, the organization and to the broader art community.

Residency Fee (Paid by Artists)

35000THB per month, per artist (approx. 850€)

Shorter stays can be negotiated but we feel one month is the minimum time to get the best benefits from the residency program.

Artists need to pay for their own airfare and transportation to Bangkok, health insurance, visa fees, living expenses, work material and any other expenses.

Through this residency Surface Arts organises an annual exhibition. We are currently developing an exchange program between Thailand and UK and will curate an exhibition involving all of the artists who have participated in the residency and the artists they have chosen to collaborate with.

The residency is open to applications from artists at any time ... please note the deadline date posted is merely indicative.
