The new century has witnessed the rapid change of our cultural environment ensued by the transformation of the art world. International biennials and artist residencies, especially those held in growing metropolitan areas on the Asian continent and other regions once categorized as the third world, have remapped the relationships of the international art world. They have emerged as powerful vehicles of change and transformation. Today's artist residencies, by performing diverse functions that overlap with those of creative studios, alternative spaces, and art centers, influence the ways in which artists from different art world systems, communities, and geographic locations collaborate and communicate with each other. Thus, the success of artist residencies increasingly relies on the degree and effectiveness of their interactions with “others”--other institutions, other regions.

This conference, “The 21st Century Art Residency and New Institutional Collaborations,” will provide an opportunity to investigate the possibilities that arise when artist residencies, museums, and other institutions collaborate. It will provide a forum to consider the many benefits, both logistical and conceptual, of establishing these various partnerships.

On the occasion of the opening of the Gyeonggi Creation Center, established in collaboration with the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, we will be hosting Res Artis, the worldwide network of artist residencies, in creatively engaging these issues. All who are interested are welcome to attend and contribute their perspectives to this timely conversation.
