Trans is a prefix which means to go beyond, get across, cross, exchange, change and convert. The Residence Program provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments for their future projects. Participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people while they, in turn, will acquire new views through new encounters. As a result of the residence program, the artists will convey their new experiences, from the local’s vernacular lifestyle to its peculiar geographic conditions, to their next destination. We hope that the residence program at Akiyoshidai International Art Village becomes a space for artists to go beyond cultural borders, exchange their unique perspectives and establish relationships with fellow artists.

The aim of the Residence Support Program is to support young artists’ experimental artistic activities, crossing the borders of art disciplines and nationalities. The artists will be carefully selected by the Selection Committee of the Residence Program of Akiyoshidai International Art Village. During the residency period, artists will create new ideas and works in collaboration with AIAV curatorial staff. We strongly hope that selected artists will actively communicate with local people in Yamaguchi, participate in different projects, including workshops, lectures, school visits to exhibitions.
