Artist in residence program

SewonArtSpace is organizing an artist in residency program in Bantul, South Yogyakarta about 20 minutes from the city center. Besides Institutions and Ministries, individuals can apply for a residency with a minimum time of 7 days and maximum time of 3 months. The property includes 700m2 outdoor area as well as 300m2 indoor space with a 110 m2 shared studio and exhibitions room as well as a fully equipped shared kitchen and shared office area. The rooms are furnished. The bathrooms have European standard toilets and hot water showers. Bantul is a very pleasant neighborhood offering a good range of restaurants, local shops, craftsmen workshops and natural landscapes. Yogyakarta is very accessible in terms of distances, galleries and museums are all within reach by motorbike and so artist supply stores. ISI the most known art institute in Yogyakarta is 5 minutes to the South. Upon arrival the artist will be picked up by one of our staff and introduced to the space and area with sufficient maps, contacts and other materials. Paid services like translator and project manager can be arranged.

SewonArtSpace has no specific focus on art medium or specification on work subject. Although we do encourage the artists visiting to mediate on the theme of our house and program.

The intended duration and date of stay has to be clarified in advances as SewonArtSapce is currently hosting 4 Austrian artists selected and funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Culture, Arts and Education for each 3 months per year.
