Artist residency and studios in ‹‹Kyoto City Center



FELLINI Gallery Kyoto is an Art Center located inside an eco-friendly boutique hotel, comprising an international art gallery, café/bar, ateliers, studios and residency in the cultural and artistic city of Kyoto, Japan. Japan's cultural affairs agency's move from Tokyo to Kyoto opens a bright future for Kyoto's art scene.

Residency offers private rooms in the hotel, some rooms with the private balcony with the city view in the Kyoto city center of Japan.  We are 3 min walk to the subway stop Sanjo Keihan, along the Kamo river, 5-10 minutes walk to Gion, Pontocho with many restaurants, bars, cafes, Nishiki market, Shijo, and Kawaramachi but inside is very quiet.

This extraordinary space where a diverse group of international artists can work and live concept, has created a lot of excitement and success amongst artists in Berlin and we have created a similar concept in Kyoto.

A long term or short-term residency and exhibition cooperation opportunities with the internationally known gallery are available.  For the residency, shared rooms 450€, private rooms start 650€ to 900€ monthly and 100€ shared studio monthly.  There is no funding available and the artists must pay for their own travels and housing.  Residency does not guarantee the exhibition as the Gallery director chooses the artists. 

Monthly rate include water, electric, fully furnished with Bed linens, towels, washing machine, maid service, fast free Wi-Fi, kitchen with full utensils.
