TOKAS and Taipei Artist Village (TAV) have been operating a two-way residency program that invites and sends creators to and from Japan and Taiwan since 2007, and this year marks the program’s 15th anniversary. This exhibition presents works by five artists: three who stayed at the TOKAS Residency, and two who met and worked together during their stay at TAV.
OPEN SITE is a Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) open call program launched in 2016, and aims to build a platform that brings together projects focused on artistic expression across all genres. This year marked the seventh annual call for proposals, and a total of 135 applications were received. Following a strict selection process, successful candidates included five projects in the Exhibition category, two projects in the Performance category, and two projects in the dot category. Additional projects in the TOKAS Recommendation Program and the Art Mediation Program bring the total of projects to 11. We look forward to seeing the projects full of ambition to explore unprecedented expressions and create a place for creativity.
Open Studio is a special occasion for the audience to see the creative process of residing creators and to hear their talks and discussion with guest speakers.
