2017 Art Action UK Residency Artist Announced
We have received more proposals this year than ever before, the process of nominating and selecting one residency artist was made harder
as we also received a very strong list of candidates who’s proposals were all equally interesting.
After the long process of examining each proposals and hard discussions,
Art Action UK is delighted to announce
Yumi Song as 2017 Art Action UK residency artist.
Song, is an artist / independent curator who has been actively involved in the projects dealing with post Fukushima issues. She has directed art festival in Fukushima, curated AUC Earth Project for Miyagi, Traveling Theory in Fujinoyama Biennale, among many other projects. Song is interested in discourse to do with “tolerance” which can become more complex and harder issue to address when faced with a catastrophe. Song is hoping to explore this issue not only from her first hand experience after Fukushima, but with most current socio political situation unfolding in the world.
