residency opportunity: Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art

Mashiko Museum Residency Program is conducting an artist residency enterprise (Artist in Residence) that provides the opportunity for cultural exchanges for both domestic and overseas ceramic artists, and to aim of developing and raising the level of art culture. This time, we advertise for a few ceramic artists to participate in Open Call program 2019.

Mashiko Museum Residency Program was initiated in May 2014 by Mashiko town and Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art. The artist-in-residence program invites active artists from outside of the town to stay and work in Mashiko.

We have two kinds of programs, Guest Artist Program and Open Call Program (started in 2017). The guest artists are invited by Mashiko town / Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art to stay and work here and the open call artists stay and work here after being accepted through our application process. During their stay in Mashiko, artists conduct exchange events such as slide lectures, workshops, open studios, etc. together with work creation. Through this enterprise, we are aiming to deepen the exchanges between artists from outside of the town and creative people in and around Mashiko. We also hope that ceramics and other crafts of Mashiko will be shared widely both nationally and internationally, and that this program will be a springboard for new creative paths.

Mashiko Arts & Crafts Residence has been built with the generous donation from Minoru Otsuka, a Mashiko-born businessman and the founder of Otsuka Corporation. The facility was completed in spring 2014, and stands in the premises of Ceramic Art Messe Mashiko. It is a one-story building with red tiles for the roof, which uses minerals from Ashinuma in Mashiko. The facility includes a living space for the artists-in-residence as well as a multi-purpose atelier.
