Artist Residency in China

I: project

Mission The residency at I: project space was founded in 2014 to offer a space where artists could live and work, providing time for reflection and production over a period of between two and three months in the inspiring setting of Beijing. The key to the residency concept is the transposition of artists into a cultural context different from their own, accelerating reflection on one’s own work and the cultural and social discourse.

OverviewThe program is open to artists who work in all disciplines, however one must note the restricted facilities. It is intended for artists, curators, writers, architects from all around the world who want to use their time at I: project space to further research a specific topic in China or want to realize a concrete project in our space.
