Residency 2018 Periode #1

English | Indonesia

Ardi Gunawan (Indonesia), Bridget Reweti (New Zealand), and Coco Duivenvoorde (Netherlands)

Artist-in-Residence Program Period #1, 2018

From March to May 2018, Cemeti hosted three artists from Indonesia, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. This residency program is organized by Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society and supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Asia New Zealand Foundation, and Unisadhuguna International College, Jakarta.

Cemeti Artist-in-Residence Program is a platform for artists with post-studio based practice, encouraging an open process of artistic research and knowledge exchange. The program is to support the participating artists in developing their critical perspectives on their own practice, and to connect them directly with local communities, build meaningful relationships, and through their work address key issues at stake in the local context and beyond. The residency will culminate in a final presentation in any form that relates to the artists’ research findings and artworks.
