Japan | ARCUS Project residency 2020 call

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - ARCUS PROJECT 2020 IBARAKI ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM. Applications for the ARCUS Project artist-in-residence program are now open!

The organisers look forward to receiving applications from artists who hope to realize creative projects at ARCUS Project.

ARCUS Project’s artist-in-residence program provides opportunities for emerging artists in the field of contemporary art to cultivate their artistic creativity and vision. Located around an hour from Tokyo, a residency at ARCUS Studio allows participants in the program to come into contact with the contemporary art scene in Japan as well as devote themselves to their creative endeavors in a calm environment while interacting with the local community. Through the support the program offers from its dedicated team of coordinators and regular tutorials with a curator, artists are able to search for and explore approaches in their practices and undertake new challenges in their artistic expression.

The program particularly emphasizes research-based practices and presents the initial results of these processes at open studios. It welcomes ideas for artworks and projects that develop out of encounters with people, the land, and culture, and aspire to form critical spaces that are open and international.
