Winter Residency at Beijing's Inside-Out Art Museum 北京中间美术馆冬天驻地项目
Open Call for Artists and Researchers 公开招募艺术家和研究者
China Residencies and the Inside-Out Art Museum Residency in Beijing are teaming up to invite artists and researchers to apply for three month residencies this winter. Artists and researchers working in any medium who are concerned with history, politics, and society are invited to apply. We welcome in-depth proposals concerned with contemporary localities and realities in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the greater Chinese diaspora worldwide.
Applicants are welcome to draw on art in the socio-political and historical context of the Greater China region, and are encouraged to propose research topics based on their own intellectual and artistic approaches. We are particularly interested in proposals that look into specific periods of time in China’s contemporary art history, including subcurrents in art that are relevant to critical issues in today's societies and policies, as well as all cultural and artistic topics that remain undiscussed or underdiscussed.
The selected projects are expected to begin in December 2018 and to complete by the end of February 2019. Dates are flexible, applicants will need to provide tentative timelines for their proposed project. Apply online before September 1st 2018. Finalists will be notified by September 15th and the selected resident will be announced on October 1st.
The Locality/Reality Residency covers:
Housing and workspace in loft studio at the Inside Out Museum (two bedrooms upstairs and a large studio on the first floor)
Round trip travel to Beijing
