Artist Residencies Gathering in Tokyo

Register Today!

The Artist Residencies International Conference, Worldwide Network of Artist Residencies / Res Artis General Meeting 2012 TOKYO will be held from October 26 to October 28.

For the first time in 14 years, the General Meeting of the worldwide network of artist residencies Res Artis will focus on Asia. With this region’s rapid economic growth matched by an increasing attention on its artists, artist residencies take on greater significance. Allowing artists the time, space and often funding to create work in an atmosphere of international dialog and exchange, these programs also offer new possibilities for collaboration among museums, biennales, universities and municipalities throughout the world.

They provide artists with the means to help us all consider new visions of the future.  Bringing together speakers from around the globe to offer their perspectives, Res Artis 2012 Tokyo will consider how we can contribute to this vital interchange, assist the trans-national flow of ideas, further the mission and goals of art centers and support residency programs.
