July 8th – July 28th 2019

Program created to host international artists from all over the world.

The name NOA NOA is the title of Paul Gauguin’s travelogue, originally conceived as commentary on his paintings and describing his experiences in Tahiti. He wrote “I have escaped everything that is artificial and conventional, here I enter into Truth, become one with nature”. So, the NOA NOA Art Residency evokes how the trip and the escape from the urban context have played an important role on the inspiration and development of Paul Gauguin’s artistic creativity. We want to offer our Artists-in-residence the best conditions in order to develop their creativity in an environment surrounded by nature discovering East Indonesian culture, in Bali. The NOA NOA Art Residency’s identity stems from the necessity to guarantee an intimate, deep and free dialogue about art.

Our Artists-in-residence will work in our facilities, as well as in close contact with Indonesian art and nature. We will enable them to get in touch with the fast growing art scene in Bali encouraging long-lasting relationship between Bali and foreign cultures. The NOA NOA Art Residency, as a lab of experimental art, provides the chance and space for our Artists-in-residence to carry out research and development. The Residency offers contacts with artists, promotion for local art environments, and creates conditions of interaction across different fields and geographical areas. The NOA NOA Art Residency is particularly beneficial to artists who consider restorative living in a peculiar natural setting.
