Cemeti Art House
For its Pasang Air residency program in 2017, Cemeti Art House invites three artists from three different countries to spend a period of three months in Yogyakarta. Within the program, artists are given the opportunity to concentrate on artistic research, developing work and experimentation, as well as to interact with other artists, local art workers and Cemeti’s extensive community. The program entails several public moments, amongst others a conversation with local constituencies, as well as a final presentation, which often takes the form of an exhibition in Cemeti’s gallery space, but can be expanded to include other forms of publicness.
Cemeti Art House welcomes diverse visual art practices, and particularly those that are research based, social and experimental or that engage in critical discourse. Cemeti Art House also facilitates projects that connect artists with other professionals or that engage with specific communities (in Yogyakarta and its surroundings). Cemeti Art House, Yogyakarta.

Symbiotica: The Science of Arts Residencies
Based at the University of Western Australia, SymbioticA is the world leader for art and biology research, scholarship and collaborative work. Through this residency model, SymbioticA welcomes approaches to artistic research in the life sciences by non-western practitioners whose cultural framework may reveal new perspectives about how we understand life.
In 2017 SymbioticA will partner with Periferry. Located on a ferry on the river Brahmaputra in Guwahati, India, the organisation supports hybrid practices and dialogue across artistic, scientific, technological, and ecological fields.
This is an invitation residency for Asian artists. Please do not apply through Asialink's annual grant round.
|Summary||Established in 2000, SymbioticA is a unique artistic research centre dedicated to the research, learning, critique and hands-on engagement of the life sciences. It is the first research laboratory of its kind in the world, in that it enables artists to engage in wet biology practices in a biological science department. SymbioticA offers a new means of artistic inquiry, one in which artists actively use the tools and technologies of science, not just to comment about them, but also to explore their possibilities. As a mark of international recognition of its activities, SymbioticA was awarded the inaugural Golden Nica for Hybrid Arts in the Prix Ars Electronica in 2007. Their focus on artistic research and experimental engagement with life is realised through residencies, mentorships, workshops, academic courses and public engagement in exhibitions and forums.|
