ECHANGEUR 22 is a non-profit association that supports emerging contemporary artists working in the visual arts. Since 2015, it has run a residency programme that aims to encourage collaborations among artists from Europe, Brazil, Japan and South Korea.
For its seventh edition, the ECHANGEUR22 residency will take the theme of Mobility, and will bring together one French artist, one Japanese artist, one Brazilian artist, and one South Korean artist for 6 consecutive weeks.
As a residency for creation and experimentation, the project offers candidates the opportunity to meet, exchange with and emulate other residents from different cultures. It offers the conditions to conceive and produce a new work, as well as to conduct an original and experimental work, in a particular context -
that of cultural mixing.
During the residency, the artists will be asked to question their own work in relation to the notion of circulation of works and mobility in art in anticipation of a possible participation in the MOBILITY circulation project developed by E²², a project of residencies and itinerant exhibitions between Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Tokyo (Japan) and Seoul (South Korea).
- A production budget of 1000 euros for the period of residency (under condition of obtaining subsidy).
- A residency grant of 1000 euros.
- Accommodation in an equipped artist's studio.
- A transportation allowance including a round trip to the place of residency.
