In 2006, Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) launched a residence program called "Creator-in-Residence," which provides creators from a variety of countries working in a wide range of genres, including art, video, music, and architecture, with an opportunity to live and work for a period in Tokyo or a foreign destination. In this exhibition, we present the results of the 2018 program in which a total of 14 individuals and groups were dispatched to an affiliated facility in another part of the world or invited to stay in Tokyo.

Residency programs are designed to help artists distance themselves from the routine of daily life, and live and work for a given period in a foreign country. The programs also provide them with an opportunity to objectively reexamine the places and environments that they normally inhabit, and allow them to see their current situation from a bird's-eye view. Artists, whose views of society tend to be ahead of the curve, have a special ability to detect, research, and make works based on things that most of us do not notice or see. These include, for example, shedding light on the history of common people that has been buried in the past, and the social systems that naturally arose in these areas and surroundings. In this exhibition, 14 groups of artists present works that grew out of their experiences in a residency program. It will be very interesting to see these works in which the artists attempt to capture the instant when foreshadows of what might happen in the future assume an obscure shape.
