About Artist in Residence

Our residency programme started in Kyoto in 2016, but after accepting a two-month residency from abroad, the residency programme was discontinued during Corona, with only short stays of one day to one week by researchers and artists from Japan and abroad.
It is now planned to move the facility to Tokyo in June 2024 and accept artists-in-residence for several months every year.

This residence is old and tiny Japanese residential spaces only and is not equipped with studios or other spaces and facilities for production or galleries for presenting exhibitions.

That’s why we supports artists’ research-based activities. We also work with other institutions in an effort to provide them with art-making opportunities.
