DJ Spooky to open artist residency center in Vanuatu
Got an email from Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, about his intent to open an artist residency center on the island of Tanna in the country of Vanuatu – a group of 83 islands in the middle of the South Pacific.
He is setting up a foundation dealing with contemporary art in the South Pacific, he’s got 400 acres of land on the island, and will be inviting artists, writers, film makers, composers etc from all over the world to do small residencies of several weeks each. They’re going to have artist residencies starting mid next year, and the whole venue will be based on bamboo.
Basic project info on DJ Spooky’s Vanuatu Pacifica Foundation available here.
