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.
