Artist-In-Residence Program of ARCUS Project which aims to support the artistic activities of emerging artists was launched in 1994 by Ibaraki Prefectural Government as its main organizer. In its 23 years history, ARCUS Project has invited 97 artists from 31 countries / regions, and supported their artistic projects and researches during the residence. A number of previous resident artists are now known as cutting-edge artists in the international art scene.
ARCUS Project Artist-In-Residence Program has focused more on the “process” of activities. Therefore, we are looking for a project which does not regard final presentation as a goal, but tries to conduct a site-specific research / project within a certain period of time. It is also expected that the research / project is open to public for sharing the process and collaboration. The proposed projects are supposed to be temporary works with which the applied area can be returned to its original state. Since our program is aimed at promoting international exchanges, applicants should possess national of a country other than Japan. Not more than one artist will be selected from one country / region.
