Artist Residency Program (ARP)
The Artist Residency Program of J-Collabo focuses on artists from Japan, to develop their practice through research and experimentation. The programming will provide opportunities for the artist to meet fellow artists, curators, institutions and communities, as they explore new perspectives, discover and cherish one's own uniqueness, as they enrich the lives of all they encounter. 

ARP announcement

(Dec. 16, 2022) J-Collabo is proud to announce our collaboration with the Contemporary Art Foundation, a Japanese non-profit organization established by the visionary philanthropist, Yusaku Maezawa. 

CAF's Artist Award (CAFAA) started in 2015 with the intension to recognize talented emerging Japanese artists through a selected jury process. Together with CAF, our joint mission is to provide the awardees the opportunity to further develop their artistic practices as ARP participants. 

For further details and application requirements for the 2023 cycle, please check CAF's website.

Current ARP participants


Born in Shimane, Japan

Nomura’s work explores the physical and mathematical underpinnings of the natural world and our cosmos. Early works engaged Fibonacci sequences and mathematical ratios in the development of two-dimensional images of natural phenomena. Since 2010, Nomura’s practice has expanded into the development of conceptual projects and installations that engage the viewer as an active participant in exploring the underpinnings of perception.
