Residence Period: 2017.01.10-2017.02.06
"I will research artists working at the facility while there; artists who have worked at the facility in the past; and contemporary artists working in Tokyo. From this research I will identify 5-6 international artists who are suitable to combine with 5-6 artists from Australia, related by the same thematic thread in their work, to develop an exhibition of 10-12 artists (half Australian, half Japanese/international) to be exhibited in 2018, simultaneously, in Tokyo and Melbourne."
