New Zero Art Space Myanmar
Artist-in-Residence Program: Submission Call

New Zero Art Space, Yangon, Myanmar invites visual (and performance) artists from Asia, Europe and North America to the first Artist-in-Residency Program in Myanmar. Myanmar is a unique and old culture in the heart of South East Asia, famous for its stunning gold pagodas, its kind and gentle people and its strong Buddhist history.

The program is an exceptional opportunity to support artists from around the world who have a keen interest in Myanmar art and culture. The philosophy of the program also encourages an ongoing exchange with the art and culture from the artist’s host country.

The residency is one month in the heart of Yangon. New Zero Art Space will provide one round trip
air ticket, accommodation and living expenses during the residency. The residency will also include a studio and exhibition space. The artist will be requested to exhibit his/her work at the end of the residency with promotional materials in the form of a brochure will be included, so that the work and artistic and cultural ideas can be shared and exchanged with a larger audience.

Applications are currently being accepted
Deadline: 30 December 2009

Applications must include:
– CV
– Portfolio (min. 3 works submitted as jpgs)
– Project description for the residency

The New Zero Art Space Advisory Committee consisting of artists from Myanmar and international advisors will select an artist based on the project and the quality of the work submitted.
