A collaborative project between the Goethe Institut, Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney College of the Arts and Sherman Galleries.

Art ConneXions is a project that has been initiated by the Goethe-Institut in Asia, involving residences for 18 artists in nine locations in the Asia Pacific region, integrating German artists with those from Asia, Australia and New Zealand. In Sydney, Art ConneXions is curated by Australian Centre for Photography.

Sydney College of the Arts has hosted Nicola Meitzner from Germany and Jay Yao has been in residence at Sherman Galleries. The work produced on this residency, along with that from residences in Kuala Lumpur and Manila later in the year, will be shown at Australian Centre for Photography in September 2005.

Following the four week residency three artists will speak about their residency experiences and talk about the projects that they have been working on during their time together in Sydney.
