Artist Residency in China

TCG Nordica

Mission TCG Nordica is an international art gallery and culture centre nestled in the LOFT (an artist community) in Kunming, China. TCG Nordica’s Artist-in-Residence Program is open for international artists to apply. We provide a rich cross cultural environment for the artist in residence to experience life in a different culture with opportunities to cooperate and dialogue with international and local artists and create something new. We hope that this exposure gives the artist a new understanding and inspiration.  

TGC Nordica is open to all international artists.

Application Requirements
Applications for the Artist in Residence program should be sent to TCG Nordica Gallery’s manager 6-12 months prior to the applied residence dates together with the artist’s C.V. and documents including samples of art work.
