Ongoing AIR is a residency program launched by Art Center Ongoing in April, 2013.
Domestic / overseas artists and curators are all welcome to join the 2-month residency program where the Art Center offers an accommodation and an exhibition opportunity at Art Center Ongoing.
Art Center Ongoing was founded in 2008 by Nozomu Ogawa. Ogawa and his artists friends reformed an old ordinary house into an art center which has a main gallery on 2nd floor and a relaxing nice cafe on 1st floor.
– Artists Network –
The greatest attraction of Art Center Ongoing is its large artists network.
Since its establishment, Ongoing has grown to be one of the most successful Tokyo art spots where active on-going artists in their 20s and 30s always get together and exchange their views seeking for new expressions of art.
Hanging out with the Ongoing artists with beer must be the best shortcut to know what?s going on in Tokyo contemporary art world.
– Location –
Art Center Ongoing and the residency accommodation are both located in Kichijoji, one of the most popular cities in Tokyo. Because of its deep culture and rich nature, many artists, writers and various genres of creators are attracted to this area.
Easy access to heart of Tokyo is another good point of Kichijoji. It only takes 20 minutes to Shibuya and Shinjuku by train.
