ARCUS Project 2024 IBARAKI Artist-in-Residence Program is now open for entries!
ARCUS Project 2024 IBARAKI Artist-in-Residence Program: 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.
ARCUS Project’s artist-in-residence program provides opportunities for emerging artists (a 90 days (30 August — 27 November, 2024) artist-in-residency program in Moriya, Ibaraki, Japan.) 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 has a total of one individual/group staying at one time (concurrently with one Japanese artist/group).
The applicant must:

➜ be resident outside Japan and able to enter Japan legally.
➜ not be enrolled at an educational institution during the program period unless it is a PhD program.
➜ have an English-language ability proficient enough to communicate with other artists and staff.
The program particularly emphasizes research-based practices and presents the initial results of these processes at open studios.
