Akiyoshidai International Art Village Residence Support Program (Japan)

Call for Artists

Akiyoshidai International Art Village Residence Support Program: trans_2013-2014 provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments to guide their projects. Participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people while they, in turn, will hopefully acquire new perspectives through these fresh encounters. As a result of the residence program, the artists will convey their new experiences, gathered from the local lifestyle and our particular geographic situation, to their next destination. Akiyoshidai International Art Village aims to become a space for artists to go beyond cultural borders and expand their outlooks, exchange their unique understandings and establish relationships with fellow artists.

The program's prefix, 'trans', means to go beyond, get across, cross, exchange, change and convert which is symbolic of the experience. The theme for the 2013-2014 program is "the features of this land".

Residency period is January 19 – March 14, 2014.

Deadline to apply is July 31, 2013.

Akiyoshidai International Art Village, designed by the architect, Arata Isozaki, was founded in 1998 with the aim of providing a platform for artists in residence as well as for a variety of art forms and cultural activities. AIAV's main hall has a capacity of approximately 300 and its residence hall can house 100, and the village also features a restaurant, seminar room, studios, gallery, and café.
