Dear Artists and Colleagues,
Akiyoshidai International Art Village is an art institution run by the
Yamaguchi Prefecture in Japan.
We've run an International Artist in Residency Program since we were
established in 1998 as one of the pioneer artist residency institutions in
We're pleased to announce the call for applications for our
“trans_2007-2008; International Artist in Residence Support Program.”
The aim of“trans_2007-2008 Residence Support Program” is to support young
artists’ experimental artistic activities, particularly those that venture
beyond the borders of art disciplines and nationalities. Residents will be
carefully selected by the Selection Committee of the Residence Program of
Akiyoshidai International Art Village. We strongly hope that resident
artists will actively tackle many different kinds of projects. Because of
the “trans” is a primarily a project oriented artist-in-residence program,
AIAV curators will endeavor to assist artists with the completion of their
projects. For instance, we could assist in coordinating workshops, lectures,
school visits, exhibitions, and so on. Resident artists will submit a
proposal to realize such projects.
