2017 LAND ART MONGOLIA RESIDENCIES

We seek applications from emerging and mid-career artists, for whom appointments as resident artists may make a significant difference to their careers. Experience in environmental art is requested. The Residency Program is designed as a retreat experience to pursue personal creative work and share in collegial interaction within a small community of Mongolian and international artists.
We encourage artists to spend a period of time in a special off-grid environment. It will allow the artist to the necessary time to work on his/her project, unaffected by all external influences and the need for results to be presented.
