Aomori Contemporary Art Center

Japan / Aomori
Established 2001

  • Aomori Contemporary Art Center's Building
The Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC), Aomori Public University opened in December 2001 as an artistic institution centered on an ‘Artist in Residence’ (AIR) program. We invite to our facility artists who play an active part in the field of contemporary art. During the residency period, we hold an exhibition and various exchange programs to contribute to the creative life.

Through creative activities, presentations, workshops, and lectures by the artist, the aim of the program is to help the audience gain a deeper understanding of art and to promote international exchange.

Therefore, on this AIR program, our aim is not only to support the artist whilst he creates his /her work, but also to use the program as a tool for the local audience to learn art. Through the encounters and the interaction between the artists and people in Aomori a new creative space will be born.
