KYOTO- FELLINI Gallery Kyoto is an Art Center located ground floor of an eco-friendly boutique hotel, comprising an international art gallery, café/bar, ateliers, studios, and residency in the cultural and artistic city of Kyoto, Japan. Japan’s cultural affairs agency’s move from Tokyo to Kyoto opens a bright future for Kyoto’s art scene. We are 3 min walk to the subway stop Sanjo Keihan, along the beautiful Kamo river, 5-10 minutes walk to Gion, Pontocho with many restaurants, bars, cafes, Nishiki market, Shijo, and Kawaramachi but inside is very quiet.

This extraordinary space where a diverse group of international artists, students, and business professionals can work and live concepts, has created a lot of excitement and success amongst artists in Berlin and we have created a similar concept in Kyoto. A long term or short-term residency and exhibition cooperation opportunities with the internationally known gallery are available.

For the residency depending on the high & low travel season, private rooms start from 80000 JPY to 100000 JPY monthly and 10000 JPY shared studio monthly. Residency does not guarantee the exhibition as the Gallery director chooses the artists. The monthly rate includes water, electricity, fully furnished Bed linens, towels, a washer/dryer, free bike parking, maid service, fastest free Wi-Fi, kitchen with full utensils. If you are interested please let us know your arrival and departure dates, and the type of accommodation.

There is no funding and the artist must pay for their own transportation and housing.

If you are already in Japan, you are welcome to view the space Mon-Sat 10:00 – 17:00. For any further inquiries pleae contact:

BERLIN- FELLINI Gallery Berlin has moved to Kyoto, Japan. FELLINI Berlin Art Center was a 7000m2 complex, our first tenant was a painter, then sculptors, photographers, graphic designers, fashion designers, writers, and musicians moved in and created exciting projects together.

In Berlin, we no longer have a gallery/art center but some of our artists offer a great Berlin city center residency including a live and work studio, in the best part of creative Kreuzberg, so let me know if you are interested in Berlin.
