Through supporting their activities, the program seeks to create a platform for art exchange in Asia. The program also aims to initiate cultural collaboration among artist/researcher/curator and local communities for broadening and deepening the public understanding of Asian art, and thus cultivating rich regional culture.
Program Activities
The visiting artists, researchers, and curators are encouraged to conduct art exchange program(s) such as workshop and public talk during the residency.
*FAAM covers the expenses relating to the exchange program.
Between 1998 and 2016, the program supported 14 artists and 22 researchers/curators from 21 countries and regions in Asia.
* The creative activities of the artists/researchers/curators have provided various opportunities to the local communities to be exposed to art and develop their cultural understanding.
* Though interacting with local artists and art professionals, the resident artist/researcher/curator has cultivated a meaningful network to develop artistic exchange in Asia.
* Through sharing their experience in their own country, the resident artists/researchers/curators have simulated the regional art scene in Asia.
