AIR3331 Research Project "An Alternative Tokyo"

February 22, 2012 / residency

Asian Artists Discover
An Alternative Tokyo

Residence Program: 1st February - 31st March 2012
Exhibition: 3rd March - 25th March 2012 12:00-19:00 3331 Arts Chiyoda Main Gallery B

In an artist in residence (AIR) program artists stay and make work in a specific location, building an intimate relationship with the people and place and release many of the stories, the history, the culture which is contained within the locality.

In this AIR3331 residence program being held at 3331 Arts Chiyoda acclaimed artists from India, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia take the first steps in a long term research project. In their 1 month stay what will they encounter? Who will they meet? How will they form a relationship with the neighbourhood?

In this exhibition the artists will present interviews, research documentation, plans for project development, while using the gallery as an open studio space in which visitors may engage with the live creation and investigations of the artists, this opportunity of exchange being a vital process for the artists.

Let's anticipate "An Alternative Tokyo" to be uncovered by these artists as they interact with the people of Tokyo, its international communities, experts and 3331 visitors, in an eclectic mix of people and places.
