What's on



Committed to supporting artists, curators, and researchers by offering them time and space to pursue their research without the pressure of deadlines and production commitments, the Residencies Programme values the open-ended nature of artistic research and embraces multiform expressions of creative enquiry. Aiming to facilitate the production of knowledge, this studio-based programme is dedicated to established and emerging artists and serves as platform for critical exchange in Southeast Asia. The Residencies Programme offers a wide spectrum of programmes aimed at sharing the process of artistic research with the public - Residencies OPEN / Studio Sessions / Insights, which range from open studios, artists’ talks, conversations, performances, and screenings. The Residencies Programme unfolds through annual cycles and runs by nomination only. Every year, a rotating pool of curators and arts professionals from all over the world is invited to nominate two artists for the residency. The nominated artists are subsequently invited to submit a research proposal along with their portfolio and CV. Ultimately, the Residencies Committee, an international panel of experts, reviews the submitted materials and designates the artists who are awarded the residency.


Rodolfo Andaur

Residency period

4 April – 17 April 2017


Rodolfo Andaur (b. 1979, Chile) has been coordinator of various contemporary art projects in northern Chile, promoting local artistic practices in relation to Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Peru. He has undertaken several international curatorial residencies in Poland, Mexico, Brazil, and Germany. Andaur has also contributed to various magazines and publications such as Artishock, Atlas Magazine, and Rotunda Magazine and is currently part of the academic staff of the Diploma in Critical and Curatorial Studies at Adolfo Ibáñez University, Santiago, Chile.


Concentrating on Singapore, Philippines, and South Korea as fields of inquiry, Andaur will develop his research on multi-colonial zones. He will examine urban landscapes, cultures, ethnicities, and artistic practices within these chosen countries in order to build an online resource platform with a socio-spatial analysis of the intersections between landscape, culture, and political practice. Throughout his curatorial research process, Anduar will connect with visual artists, researchers, and curators in order to gain a better understanding of local contemporary art practices and their importance within the cultural ecosystem of the region.
