About the HomeBase Project
The HomeBase Project (HB) is a not-for-profit, international nomadic artist-run residency and research program that explores the notion of “home.” Operating at the intersection of contemporary art, social innovation, and urban change, HB’s mission is to foster interconnectedness in society and challenge the role artists play in shaping their surrounding, connecting art and everyday living. To that end, HB transforms vacant sites located in urban areas undergoing change into temporary 'artistic homes' where selected artists live together and create site-specific installations expressing their idea of home and contribute to a lively cultural and communal program which is open to the public free of charge.
To date, HB has nurtured the growth of over 80 international emerging and established artists, and has touched thousands who have visited the HB projects in various cities.
In 2009, the Volta Show called the HomeBase Project 'a new model for public art', HB was invited to present its mission and outcomes as a 'special project' at the Volta Show in New York City and in Basel, and HB was also presented at the Guggenheim LAB in Berlin, at the Res Artis Conference in Tokyo (2012), at the Microresidency Forums in Japan (2012 / 2014 / 2015), and at the Wander #1 Symposium in the Hague (2013) and will be featured as a special project in the upcomming Sataima Triennala (2016).
HB has garnered coverage in publications such as the New York Times, New York Magazine, Bettery Magazine for its pioneering international urban residency and research model.
Due to It's unique positioning in fields of art and urbanism, and due to outstanding roster of artists and team members, HB continues to build awareness through out the art world and beyond.
