The Asia New Zealand Foundation is calling for applications
for its six artist-in-residence programmes for 2012.
Professional emerging and mid-career artists with a record of achievement
are invited to submit a written application(s) to Asia New Zealand Foundation
by no later than 5pm on Friday, 28 October 2011.
The rapid economic and social changes taking place in Asia
have created some dynamic emerging contemporary art scenes.
The region is being visited by an increasing number of international artists
who want to engage in these changes first-hand.
Successful candidates will live and work in Asia
at one of six prestigious residency organisations for two to three months,
and will have the opportunity to meet and work
with other international artists and curators.
The six programmes are:
1Shanthi Road, Bangalore, India
Changdong Art Studio, Seoul, Korea
Institute for Provocation, Beijing, China
NS43 exchange, S-AiR Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan
Taipei Artist Village, Taiwan
Three Shadows, Beijing, China
Preference will be given to projects with potential
for artistic collaboration and exhibition outcomes.
Successful candidates will be required
to provide progress reports of their residency to Asia:NZ,
and to seek opportunities to share their experience on their return to New Zealand.
This could mean an exhibition, a series of presentations or artists talks,
or publication of articles.
Asia:NZ will provide:
a return economy airfare between New Zealand and Asia
a daily stipend for food, transport and incidentals
NZ$500 towards the cost of materials
the cost of a single entry tourist visa where required
a contribution of NZ$300 towards travel insurance.
Applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents
and able to exercise a degree of autonomy and self reliance.
