Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC) > Open call for residencies (Japan)

Since its opening in 2001, the Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC) has continued to focus its activities on an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program while interweaving ample opportunities for exchange, which include exhibitions, workshops, and talks between artists, students, and the local community. The ACAC has a unique exhibition gallery space, and until now, it has been mandatory for resident artists to participate in an exhibition during period of approximately three months. This has been the defining feature of the ACAC AIR program—a continuous process of production, presentation, and visitor response.
