Asia Pacific Exchange

2023 represents the first of a three-year residency exchange program between PICA and residency partners, Taipei Artist Village (Taiwan) and Grey Projects (Singapore). In this program, Western Australian artists are invited to apply for an eight-week artist residency with our international partners. Awarded to two artists each year, the residency will include studio visits, open studios and other presentation opportunities in each hosting country. In exchange, PICA will host an artist from Taiwan and Singapore recommended to us by our residency partners. The exchange enables artists from Western Australia, Taiwan and Singapore to expand their networks, form connections and develop and pursue their practices with close engagement to local art communities and institutions.
