Residence Support “trans_2019-2020”


Period:2020.1.8 - 3.12[65days]

“Live Together with This Land”

The prefix ‘trans’ means to go beyond, get across, cross, exchange, change and convert.
The Residence Support Program provides a time and place for artists to experience new encounters and carry out experiments to guide their future projects. 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 residency program, the artists will convey their new experiences, gathered from the local lifestyle and our particular geographic situation, to their next destination.

AIAV has supported over 200 domestic and international artists and their artistic activities since its open in 1998.
This fiscal year we invite 4 artists to “trans_2019-2020”. Over the period of 65 days of their stay, the artists will work on the theme “Live Together with This Land”, encountering with Yamaguchi’s environment, culture and local people, all of which are different from their own.
