Gogova Foundation's Residency was set up in 2017 to promote professional dialogue and the exchange of ideas between emerging artists from the CIS, Geogia, Central Asia and the Middle East. The task of the Residency is to give young artists the space and time to create projects which they have proposed and which have been selected by an Expert Council, consisting of leading experts on contemporary art.
For its first year, the program was based in an exhibition space in the center of the historic Old City of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. The residents for this year included Ulyana Podkorytova and Vladimir Abikh, both Russian artists, selected by the international Expert Committee.
Since 2018, the residency has been located at Nizhny Arkhyz, at the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the Republic of Karachay-Cherkess Republic. April 21, 2018, Liza Artamonova and Ilina Chervonnaya, participants of the third Gogova Foundation Artists Residency, displayed The project The Pearl Path Route.
