A4 Art Museum’s Artist in Residence International Exchange Program

Chengdu
Mission
Since the project was formally initiated in April 2011, the LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum’s Artist in Residence International Exchange Program (ARIE) has given many artists, curators, and designers from China and abroad the opportunity to interact with one another. It has also encouraged innovative artists and artist groups engaging with fresh ideas and unique artistic research to carry out participatory projects that intervene in the community or city. The residency’s focus on local production, exchange, and exhibition strengthen cultural exchange and academic dialogue between the artists and their surroundings. Based in the local community and the city, the LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum provides effective and professional scholarly support and coordinates a rich array of events and experiences during the residency, making it possible for participants to expand, diversify, and deepen their artistic practices.


Overview
The program mainly targets at artists or art groups with over 3 years of experience in art creation or curation, who have independent ideas and have breakthrough practices in their fields.
