Jim Thompson Art Center / Hong-gah Museum > Challenging Time: Online Exchange and Research Residency Programme between Thailand and Taiwan

The Challenging Time, Artists Exchange and Research in Residency Programme aims to expand the existing network between the arts communities of Taiwan and Thailand by inviting artists and curators from each country to exchange ideas and conduct research in a residency programme. The programme will last from 3 weeks to one month, during which time participants will visit artists’ studios and connect with local arts communities and art institutions, as well as policymakers on their topic of interest.

Due to the COVID 19 crisis, everyone is still unsure about the future, if the pandemic will return in a second wave, and when border restrictions will be eased. This online residency programme will help both curators and artists take time out to do research and learn more about each other and contemporary art practices in relation to the social, political, economic, and cultural context. Exhibition tours and lectures along with studio visits will be held online while a proposal presented after research will be included, and there will be further possibilities to realise the proposal offline. It’s also important to exchange ideas on how to deal with the uncertainty in this unsettled world.

8 applicants (4 from Thailand, 4 from Taiwan) will be selected to participate. Thai and Taiwanese citizens working as artists and curators are eligible to apply. Some English is required.

Selected applicants will receive:

  • 30,000 NTD participation fee.

  • Online exhibition tour and exclusive discussion session with curators of upcoming exhibitions in Bangkok and Taipei.

  • Further possibilities to realise art practices and exhibitions in Bangkok and Taipei.

Deadline: 15 October 2020
