ARCUS Project 2020 IBARAKI Artist-in-Residence Program




ARCUS Project’s artist-in-residence program provides opportunities for emerging artists in the field of contemporary art to cultivate their artistic creativity and vision. Located around an hour from Tokyo, a residency at ARCUS Studio allows participants in the program to come into contact with the contemporary art scene in Japan as well as devote themselves to their creative endeavors in a calm environment while interacting with the local community. Through the support the program offers from its dedicated team of coordinators and regular tutorials with a curator, artists are able to search for and explore approaches in their practices and undertake new challenges in their artistic expression.
The program particularly emphasizes research-based practices and presents the initial results of these processes at open studios. It welcomes ideas for artworks and projects that develop out of encounters with people, the land, and culture, and aspire to form critical spaces that are open and international.

Program Period
August 27 through December 4, 2020 (100 days)

The applicant must:
--- be an emerging artist engaged in contemporary visual arts or other related fields.
--- be born on or after January 1, 1980.
--- be resident outside Japan and able to enter Japan legally.
--- not be enrolled at an educational institution during the program period unless it is a PhD program.

Program Provisions
Studio, accommodation, round-trip airfare, 180,000 yen for living expenses, and 450,000 yen for artistic activities

Application Deadline
May 12, 2020 (23:59:59 UTC+9)

Kinship Medicines | Indigenous Arts Program







Kinship Medicines is a thematic residency for queer, trans, and two-spirited Indigenous writers and visual artists who are enacting kinship ethics in their practices, particularly around discussions of gender, sex, and the queer-trans Indigenous futures movement.

This residency focuses on the discursive spark shared between queer, trans, and two spirited Indigenous visual artists and writers by focusing on conversation, collaboration, and building creative kinship between a cohort of writers who think alongside artists, whether it be through curatorial writing or literary form,  and a cohort of studio artists. 

Kinship Medicines offers a space for writers and visual artists to grow their practices around the theme of kinship—which encompasses a wide range of spaces and ideas, from BDSM to romantic friendship—as an ethic, method, and methodology for making art.

What does the program offer?

The structure of the residency consists of seminars centered around the theme. Additionally, time and space will be given for the participants to engage with their own discipline and practices in relation to the residency theme through studio practice.

Writers and visual artists will have their own studio in Glyde Hall with access to the visual art’s production facilities.

Who should apply?

This program is for global indigenous visual artists or writers who are queer, trans, or two-spirited.

This is the first artistic residency of its kind internationally that makes space specifically for queer, trans and two-spirited Indigenous peoples; and for discussion about the creative and discursive relationship between Indigenous artists and writers.

Dates: April 20 - May 15, 2020


Prizes Details: 

*Participants accepted to the program will be eligible for up to 100% scholarship to cover the program fee.

The program fee includes a single room and the Full Flex Meal Plan at Banff Centre. Travel to and from Banff Centre is the responsibility of participants.

Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 exhibition




A pioneering celebration of drawing returns to Trinity Buoy Wharf in London

“Drawing has seen something of a renaissance in the last twenty years in the UK”, wrote Professor Anita Taylor in The Guardian in 2014. An upcoming exhibition, the annual Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize celebrates this revival of drawing in London’s historic Docklands.

Until recently, resources and opportunities for drawing were few and far between. It was to bridge this gap that the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize was created in 1994. Led since by its founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee, and supported by Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, this open exhibition has established a reputation for championing excellence in contemporary drawing practice. 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

The 68 drawings selected for the 2019 exhibition by Chantal Joffe RA, Andrew Nairne OBE and Dr Dorothy Price successfully toured to The Salisbury Museum before coming to London. They will be on show in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf from 18 January to 1 February 2020. The exhibition will be open daily from 11am to 4pm and be free to see.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a wide range of events, held in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. Numerous artists and leading industry professionals will present talks and workshops that celebrate drawing, explore its role, and encourage everyone to participate, with materials supplied by Cass Art.
