APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN FOR BEYOND LIMITATIONS: A SPECIAL MENTORING PROGRAM BETWEEN AUSTRALIA AND KOREA
Here is a wonderful opportunity to be mentored by six well-known Australian and Korean ceramic artists.
Beyond Limitations is a four-week mentoring, cultural exchange program between Australian and Korean artists. The exchange program consists of six leading ceramic artists: Vipoo Srivilasa, Janet DeBoos, Stephen Bird, Seong-Keun Jeon, Young-Sil Han and In-chin Lee, mentoring twelve early career artists from both countries at the Gimhae Clayarch Museum, Korea from 20 July to 20 August, 2015.
Mentoring applications are now open at www.claymentoring.com
Application deadline: 15 December 2104
Beyond Limitations seeks to deepen the cross-cultural understanding of the art form and establish international ties predicated on the common appreciation for ceramics.
Linking Korean and Australian artists in collaboration is important in driving mutual understanding between the two divergent cultures, both historically and in today’s world where the importance of a cross-cultural global context is becoming increasingly essential.
Beyond Limitations will take place at Clayarch Gimhae Museum, established in 2006. It is quickly gaining a reputation as being one of the best ceramic museums in Korea due to the unique exhibition program and the “artist in resident” facility they provide.
Beyond Limitations is organised by an Australian ceramic artist, Vipoo Srivilasa, in partnership with Clayarch Gimhae Museum, Korea. The project is supported by the Australia-Korea Foundation.
Any Australian and Korean ceramic artists/potters who is not represented by a commercial gallery can apply.
“Facing cultural divergence helps me understand the conflicts and contradictions in issues regarding race, religious, and sexual discrimination from personal, regional, and global points of view. This is why I am actively involved in organising projects that create opportunities for cultural exchange between artists internationally.”
