Brief description of residency program

As a multiplex cultural arts center, Incheon Art Platform (IAP) is based on residency program. It hosts exhibitions, performances and concerts all over the year and runs various events and educational programs for general public. By supporting resident artists covering various genres, IAP aims to become the incubator for new arts creation and a core of contemporary art.
IAP regularly runs two types of residencies for artists: (i) A regular residency, which is the basic form of the residency, comprises artist-in-residence, exhibitions and public events. Resident artists are selected every end of year and stay here on average one year. IAP seeks to create opportunities for artists to further the practice and philosophy of their work by meeting fellow artists and to develop their ideas with local characteristics. (ii) A project-based residency, which is arranged for temporary projects in IAP. Artists, who are invited by IAP, take part in the projects from creation to exhibition during 2-3months.
