Iaspis is the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists. The main purpose is to facilitate a creative dialogue between visual artists in Sweden and international practitioners. At Inter Arts Center the grant holders are given a studio place and possibilities to exhibit their work or organise talks and other events.
International artists are suggested by the institutions that are part of the Iaspis group in Malmö, and then invited by Iaspis. In Malmö, the group consists of: Form / Design Center, Malmö University, Malmö Konsthall, Malmö Art Museum, Moderna Museet Malmö, Malmö Art Academy, Lilith Performance Studio, Lunds konsthall, Signal – Center for Contemporary Art and Inter Arts Center.
Current residents (spring 2016) are Minia Biabiany and Heman Chong.
