Name of Residency: Artist In Residence
Cemeti’s artist-in-residence programme provides a platform for artists with post-studio based practice, encouraging an open process of artistic research and knowledge exchange. The driving ambition of the residency is to encourage and support artists to connect directly with local communities, build meaningful relationships, and address key issues at stake in the local/regional context through their work. It is our hope that residents not only have the opportunity to develop their own practice but also create a meaningful exchange with local communities and the context of Yogyakarta. The residency team supports artists in developing critical perspectives on their own practice, connecting them with local artists, curators, art workers, researchers and academics, as well as with a diverse range of constituencies from across the city.
The residency programme takes place twice a year, in two three month periods; March to May, and September to November. In each residency period we host one Indonesian artists and one or two artists from other countries. The participation of each artist from outside Indonesia is in collaboration with a particular partner or funding body. Current partners include: Mondriaan Fund, the Netherlands (supporting the Netherlands based artists), Goethe Institute Indonesia (supporting Germany based artists), the National Arts Council Singapore (supporting Singaporean artists) and Australia Council for the Arts (supporting Australian artists). Below are full details about the programme model and focuses. For information about current open calls please see below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Residency Programme since:2006
Description of Organisation:Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society (formerly ‘Cemeti Gallery’, then ‘Cemeti Art House’) is Indonesia’s oldest platform for contemporary art, founded in Yogyakarta in 1988 by artists Mella Jaarsma and Nindityo Adipurnomo. The subtitle ‘Institute for Art and Society’ was added in 2017 by a new team to express the organisations commitment to socially and politically engaged artistic practices, exploring the possibility for a gallery to act as a site for civic action. Cemeti offers a platform for artists and cultural practitioners to develop, present and practice their work in close collaboration with curators, researchers, activists, writers and performers, as well as local communities across Yogyakarta. This takes the shape of exhibitions, performance, workshops, talks, assemblies, publications, research threads, residencies and more.
