ARCUS Project marked its 20th Anniversary this year. Since 1994 we have invited and supported 91 artists from 29 countries and regions. The participating artists-in-residence this year are Seyit Battal Kurt, Florencia Rodríguez Giles and Constantinos Taliotis who have been selected to spend 100 days at ARCUS Studio in Moriya, Ibaraki.
The OPEN STUDIOS is a special occasion to experience the creative process of the artists, share their achievements and capture their impressions during these 100 days.
We are looking forward to seeing you at ARCUS Project and share this special event with you.

Resident artists will show you the process what they have been doing since the arrival day.
