International Artist Residency Program
The Vancouver Biennale International Artist Residency Program is an unprecedented opportunity for international and Canadian artists from various backgrounds, regions, political histories and artistic disciplines to come together and share their practices whilst engaging with the diverse communities and public spaces of the city. Vik Muniz, renowned Brazilian artist and residency alumni has said, “Art is the stuff of transformation.” This is the core vision of the Biennale and the objective of the overall Artist Residency Program.
Through the theme of ‘re-IMAGE-n’, the 2018-2020 Residency Program will invite 60 diverse artists from six continents to participate in this program of transformative experiences that will engage the community and reverberate around the world. The artists have been nominated by prominent contemporary curators, due to their work’s political urgency and material relevance to our times.
Summer 2019 Artists in Residence: Carlos Martiel, Mamali Shafahi, Nathalie Quagliotto, and Tao Hui.
