We are pleased to be hosting Gina Buenfeld, the Exhibition Organizer at the Camden Arts Centre for a one month residency in Tokyo supported by Cultural Affairs. (The residency will take place over a course of two periods, September 2014 and February 2015)

Gina Buenfeld will introduce the history of this institution, that has been one of London's leading publicly funded spaces for international contemporary art for the past 25 years. The talk will cover the Centre's activities which range from ambitious exhibitions with artists of the highest calibre from across the international arts' scene as well as an integrated public programme of talks, events, performances and screenings and a pioneering education programme. Camden Arts Centre has a distinctive combination of galleries, studios and workshop spaces and operates a highly regarded residency scheme. The discussion will place Camden Arts Centre within the broader London and UK art scene and will introduce other key spaces, educational facilities and artists based in the country as well as giving an overview of the current financial conditions and challenges for cultural production in the UK.
