Kathmandu international artists in residency (KIAR 2024)
Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel to. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city Kathmandu where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in a Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalese are festivals year-round which they celebrate with much pomp and joy. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals. The capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. Kathmandu is an incredibly diverse historic city with breathtaking Newari architecture, centuries-old Hindu and Buddhist religious sites. […]

WE ARE ARTISTS FOR UKRAINE
In response to the humanitarian crisis affecting Ukraine, members of the wider artist-run community in Ireland wish to send a collective message of solidarity and raise funds for Ukrainian artists who are defending their country, have had to flee and rebuild their lives, and who we hope one day, will rebuild their spaces and contribute again to the art and culture of their country. Funds raised will be distributed directly to artists and artist-run spaces in Ukraine, and to ARTISTS at RISK (AR).
WE ARE ARTISTS FOR UKRAINE stands in solidarity with the artists, artist-run spaces, and all the people of Ukraine who are bravely resisting an immoral and illegal Russian invasion, those who have lost loved ones, or have been forced to flee their homes and country. Living in a country where we have a right to choose our leaders, and where we enjoy freedom of expression without fear, we also applaud those Russians who are speaking out and demonstrating against their government.

MATCA artspace is an artist-run space managed by three local artists (Alexandru Muraru, Matei Toșa and Alexandra Mocan) that emerged in Cluj-Napoca at the beginning of 2017. Since then it has been following a mindset of shaping its know-how along with its collaborations, most of them being presented in the form of group shows. Underlying the necessity of being in touch with the conscious form of artistic practice and research, the space is coagulating its purposes by drawing a thin border between aesthetics and content, usually choosing to bring out raw forms of expression. The space is meant as a tool for research into local (or nearby) contemporary art, in order to establish connections with minds that have something relevant to say about the world. Wishing to step more off the walls, MATCA prioritizes alternative forms of expression which mix mediums outside the canvas/frame, not as a form of denying traditional practices, but as a form of getting out of the comfort zone and being open to experimentation and various ways of shaping meaning. Set up to be a welcoming environment, MATCA`s aim is to fuse what could be meant under the terms of emergent and established into parallel, non-hierarchical […]

Potential Project is an independent artist-run initiative in Athens. It was born out of the need for dialogue among artists and art professionals about contemporary art, exhibition practices, the adventure of the idea, the relationship of the work with the viewer and the personal obsessions that run through and characterize the work of art. For the time being, its exhibition program is a result of a year long process of round table discussions among 28 artists and theorists of different disciplines, all looking to understand what potentiality is and how to grasp it.

ARTIST FOUND COMPANY Founded by artist Soon(aka Niña), our puzzles have a focus on original art by the artists of today. As an independent artist, Soon has been struggling to find a way to keep creating full-time, as there were barriers like money, exposure, and finding the right community for support. In her journey of searching ways to keep create, SOONNESS was born. Throughout the first year of the business in 2021, Soon created 6 artworks that would be made into puzzles and learned about manufacturing, marketing, and all things business. With lots of love from the puzzle community, we are able to collaborate with artists starting 2022 and build premium quality puzzles. We have one goal: Let the artists create, and make the world a colorful one.
