Grey Projects


AIAV Residency Exchange 2020


Grey Projects is inviting applicants for a 65-day artist residency in Yamaguchi, Japan with Akiyoshidai International Art Village (AIAV).

This residency is an exchange programme between Grey Projects and AIAV, in conjunction with their Residence Support Program ‘trans_2019-2020’.

In response to the ‘trans_2019-2020’ theme of ‘Live Together with This Land’, participating artists are expected to bring new ideas to the local culture and people, while they in turn will hopefully acquire new perspectives through these encounters. The residency will include field trips, an open studio and exhibition, talk/workshop, as well as other activities with the local community.

Upon completion, presentation opportunities back in Singapore are independently determined with the resident, and they may be expected to make a presentation about their residency experience.

Programme schedule:

  • 8 Jan, Wed — Start of programme [1st Day]

  • 9 Jan, Thu — Orientation

  • 26 Jan, Sun — Open Studio

  • 29 Feb, Sat — Opening Reception

  • 1 Mar to 8 Mar, Sun - Mon — Exhibition

  • 12 Mar, Thu — End of programme [Last Day]

Lectures, workshops, and/or talks will be scheduled separately.

The residency will take place from 8 January – 12 March 2020. In addition to accommodation and workspace, airfare will be provided. For more information about the accommodation and workspace, please visit:
