Grants to USA, Canada and International museums and art institutions located outside of Japan to increase exposure to Japanese arts and culture by planning an exhibition to feature a body of work, or establishing an artist-in-residence program to facilitate connections between artists , researchers and curators.

Eligible projects are exhibitions that will:
1) Introduce Japanese art and culture, planned and executed by foreign museums or art institutions abroad; or
2) Introduce Japanese artists and works in the framework of international art exhibitions such as biennials and triennials; or
3) Be created through artist-in-residence programs and promote exchange among local citizens, artists, curators, and researchers, with a clear concept and concrete plan for exhibitions.

Funding covers the following costs:

- Packing and shipping costs (excluding insurance costs)
- Catalogue production costs (including digital catalogue costs; for international exhibitions, support for catalogue production will be partial, based on the ratio of Japanese artists)
- Traveling costs for dispatched or invited artists, curators, and specialists (air fare, train fare, and accommodation fees; excluding costs due to travelling for preliminary research and development).

Please note that this program does not cover the production cost of art works, installation costs and artists' fees.

The exhibition must open between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018.

Overseas museums and art institutions (i.e., located outside of Japan)

If the exhibition travels to more than one venue, the host institution should consolidate the grant requests and only one application should be submitted for the whole project. The Japan Foundation will not accept multiple applications for one project.

After the screening of applications, decisions will be announced in writing in April 2017.
