About S-AIR
http://www.s-air.org/
S-AIR was established in 1999 with partial funding by The Agency for Cultural Affairs, to run an artist-in-residence programme in Sapporo, Japan.

In 2011, S-AIR initiated a new programme, FRONTIER, which is supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. In April 2013, S-AIR has moved its office to central Sapporo, and so far has hosted 81 participants in total from 33 countries and regions over the period of 15 years (by June 2014).

About the Organisations and the Curator

NPO S-AIR

NPO S-AIR was established in 1999 with partial funding by The Agency for Cultural Affairs, to run an artist-in-residence programme in Sapporo, Japan. Since it was approved to be a non-profit organisation in 2004, S-AIR started a collaborative residency project with ICC, in which we have been building networks with Japanese and international artists as well as art institutions in Japan and overseas. S-AIR has hosted 77 participants in total from 32 countries over the period of 13 years (by March 2013).
Alongside of hosting international artists in Sapporo, the S-AIR AWARD was set up in 2006 to offer residency opportunities for local artists to live and produce art work abroad using the network that S-AIR had been building up. In 2011, the award was also open for a non-local artist.

Samuel von Brukenthal Foundation and the National Brukenthal Museum

Samuel von Brukenthal (1721– 1803) was the Habsburg governor of the Grand Principality of Transylvania between 1774 and 1787. He was a baron of the Holy Roman Empire, and personal adviser of Empress Maria Theresa. A passionate art collector, he built a palace in Sibiu, where in 1817 was arranged, according to his will, the first public museum in southeastern Europe.
The Contemporary Art Gallery of the National Brukenthal Museum represented an important position in the area of promotional activities of contemporary Romanian art, representing a strong alternative to the unique trend set up by the National Contemporary Art Museum in Bucharest, being public oriented and envisaging a highly free and innovative selection of works.

Anca Mihulet (Independent Curator)

Anca Mihuleţ is a freelance curator based in Sibiu and Bucharest (RO). As a curator, Mihuleţ has been supporting young Romanian artists to research on topics such as the implications of knowledge, history, margins or landscape, and produce new works of art that talk about these issues. Since 2011, Mihuleţ has been participating in several fellowhips and residencies as she was interested in questioning and theorizing various curatorial contexts. Between 2006 and 2013, together with Liviana Dan, Mihuleţ curated exhibition programs of the The Contemporary Art Gallery of the Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu. She is also a founding member of the Curators’ Network, a mobile curatorial network between five institutions across Europe, which was set up in 2010. In 2013, Mihuleţ curated one of the two Romanian Pavilions at the 55th edition of the Venice Biennale.
