China Residencies is a non-for-profit organization creating a directory of artist residencies in mainland China. For the year end, it presents a news review of the situation of artists residencies, who’s coming up, who has closed down, and what’s going on in the world of artists spaces and residencies across China.

In the year and a half since China Residencies started taking a close look at residencies in mainland China, the one constant has been change. Independent arts organisations close and new ones open in their place. People running spaces move on to other projects, program staff comes and go, rents go up… and all three factors contribute to notable demises of community organisations, co-working spaces, collectives, and residencies.

In Beijing, independent base Homeshop closed after nearly six years at the very end of 2013. Founded by theoretically-minded artists and writers, Homeshop hosted discussions, film screenings, community item swaps and aquaponic agriculture experiments alike. The courtyard and surrounding kitchens, studios and workspaces had been described as a “rhizomatic-in-the-Deleuze-Guattarian-sense arts space and community center” and became a central hub for critical discussion. Homeshop celebrated its very last event with the launch of Appendix, a collection of stories about the space, and although their physical home is no longer, the Homeshop collective nevertheless recently contributed work to the multi-gallery exhibition Unlived By What Is Seen.

The Homeship mission lives on in other incarnations throughout Beijing’s hutongs, notably in two nearby nonprofit residency programs. Antonie Angerer and Anna-Viktoria Eschbach opened up shop at i:project space over the summer in Banqiao hutong, hosting artists Annalena Müller and Michael Bodenmann so far, as well as many artist talks, exhibitions and events in their new space. Their neighbor residency in Heizhima hutong, The Institute for Provocation, opened up an exhibition space named after their alleyway, Black Sesame. Artists-in-residence Alessandro Rolandi hung a swing from the ceiling and Esther Kokmeijer created immersive experiences out of artificial clouds and inflatable cars in the small space, providing a chance for the visiting artists to present their works directly to the public, right then and there. IFP also continued their already strong tradition of lively discussions and thought-provoking presentations.

Over in Shanghai, two creative co-working spaces ceased operations: W+K+ and Xindanwei are no longer. W+K jia provided creatives with office space, the latter in exchange of occasional work for the advertising firm Wieden + Kennedy, which occupied the rest of the building. It housed music promoters, skate-board designers, and Thea Bauman’s interactive nail art ‘appcessory’ art project-turned-startup, Metaverse Makeovers. Xindanwei also offered shared workspace for all kinds of creative work, including the occasional painter and dancer. Choreographer in residence Janis Claxton worked on collaborative pieces between Scottish and Chinese troupes, and also gave ‘innovation workshops’ for tech companies during her stay.

While those two relatively short-lived endeavors faded away, Shanghai’s Swatch Art Peace Hotel Residency across town celebrated their third birthday with the exhibition “Faces & Traces”, live public performances, parties, and traditional Swiss yodelling on the Bund. So far, 139 artists from over 30 countries participated in their luxurious, fully-funded residencies, which provides artists with hybrid studio-suites that occupy two entire floors of the hotel.

The fourth edition of Performatik, the Brussels biennial of performance art, runs 18-29 March 2015.  It explores the interface between performance arts and visual art, including discussion salons with curators, artists and critics and a course on Performance Art in Museums.

If you would like to learn more about performance art before you venture into the Performatik festival, you can take Performatik’s four part course (starting 13 March) entitled What is Performance Art? On the usefulness or pointlessness of the collective term ‘performance’. On performance past and present, in art and the performing arts. In each part we examine performance from a different angle, after which you will watch a performance (in a theatre or museum) that touches on the theme. On each occasion Katleen Van Langendonck, Kaaitheater’s programmer and the curator of Performatik, and a different specialist will guide you through the performance art landscape in words and images.

Performatik 2015 contains two impressive conversions. Choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker rethinks dance in an exhibition in WIELS. And visual artist Joëlle Tuerlinckx makes a reverse move.  Using her immense archive as a starting point, she creates a theatre performance, which will be shown in its entirety at the Kaaitheater.

Performatik has resolutely opted for the scintillating interface between performance arts and visual art. The binding element each time is the live event, the meeting between you and the performer, in the here and now. For that purpose we work together with a number of partners in the city – Argos, Beursschouwburg, Bozar, CENTRALE, Don Verboven Exquisite Objects, Passa Porta, Q-O2, Zsenne art lab, WIELS and workspacebrussels – who all contribute their own expertise. The public space is also used: the streets by Esther Ferrer, the ‘grande dame’ of Spanish performance, and the town squares by the Bouillon Group, a young Georgian company. Following the Venice Biennial, they treat Brussels to a performance that depicts our relationship with the three monotheistic religions.

Performatik seeks out the boundaries, unravels codes and stimulates meetings between different art worlds. Feel free to join any one of the many salons where we discuss our experiences together with curators, artists and critics.

Kunsthal Aarhus in Denmark invites proposals for an exhibition that responds to the theme of its new two year artistic programme 2015 – 2016: COLLECTIVE MAKING.  International open call for proposals from curators, artists, artists groups etc.

Application Deadline: 1 March 2015

Exhibition Period: June – September 2015

Notification of selected proposal(s): 20 March 2015

About Kunsthal Aarhus 

Established in 1917, Kunsthal Aarhus is a contemporary art institution located in the city of Aarhus, Denmark. It presents a programme of changing exhibitions as well as public programme including talks, seminars, writings, performances, concerts and screenings. Kunsthal Aarhus provides a dynamic platform for collaborative and transdisciplinary research, artistic experimentation and critical engagement. It operates as an incubator for ideas through initiating, commissioning, producing and presenting new works for a local and international public.

About the programme 

Kunsthal Aarhus launches a new two year artistic programme that explores the idea of COLLECTIVE MAKING. With this, we propose to examine collective processes of production, in recognition that creativity need not be bound to individualism and conventional ideas of authorship. In other parts of the world, especially historically, ownership related to creative work is far more multiple and distributed, connected to quite different social and political principles. Kunsthal Aarhus turns its attention to historical artist groups as well as contemporary art collectives, to explore their significance for creative practice, including their wider application to other disciplines and practices (including design, architecture, craft, and technology).

Conditions:

Proposals for exhibitions and associated public programme should address the overall theme of COLLECTIVE MAKING.

Kunsthal Aarhus offers approximately 1,000 square meters of exhibition spaces arranged across 4 galleries dedicated to exhibitions (Gallery 2-5) as well as one gallery dedicated to our public programme (Gallery 1).

Kunsthal Aarhus provides a budget of 200,000 DKK towards full exhibition costs (including in-house costs such as curatorial support, project management, technical support, installation, technical assistance, publicity and marketing, artist and curatorial fees, etc.).

Submission: 

The proposal must include the following:

1) Completed application form

2) Project description (max. 2 pages)

3) CV for all participants

4) Documentation of work

5) Estimated budget, and a fundraising plan for costs exceeding available budget.

Two premiere theatre institutions from UK and Asia partner together to fuse two cultures and present them onto one stage. The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) partners with The British Council in a collaboration with London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) to bring world-class training to professional actors through a week-long workshop running from 2-7 February 2015 at the PETA Theater Center Studios in Quezon City, Philippines.

PETA is dedicated to the pursuit of excellent theatre aesthetics and has long been partnering with theatre organizations and drama institutions from all over the globe. For the second time around, RADA, one of the foremost drama academies in the world, is coming to The Philippines. Following their visit in 2013 for a week-long course on Creative Musical Theater for musical theater professionals, RADA holds a course on Acting Techniques. This course will explore techniques and processes involved in performing Shakespearean text with a focus on the elements of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. At a later date, the students will be given an opportunity to join a production made through the collaboration of RADA facilitators and PETA artist-teachers, inspired by the stories from one of PETA’s partner communities in the typhoon-stricken Leyte, Philippines. The immersion intends to ground learnings from The Tempest into a local context, fusing these two cultures together in a pedagogy, towards the empowerment of people and society.

Headed by RADA’s Associate Director Nona Shepphard and Voice Tutor Tom Wakeley, students will delve into practical exercises that will develop and extend their acting and vocal techniques and will be given the opportunity to work closely with each of the tutors.  Exercises include learning the rhythm of blank verse, the use of language and word stress, inhabiting and motivating the text, giving and receiving cues, and many more.

Nida Art Colony of the Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) welcomes proposals from emerging and experienced artists, designers, architects, curators and art researchers/writers/philosophers for its upcoming remote residencies on the Baltic Sea coast in the Curonian Spit National Park, Lithuania.

Deadline for applications: February 15, 2015 for residencies between June, 2015 and May, 2016

NAC residencies are most appropriate for those who seek time and professional support for critical thinking, creative process, research, experiments, artistic production, exchange and cooperation of artists as well as those who need a big studio or spectacular open spaces—the Colony is situated about 600 meters away from the sand dunes and the Baltic Sea beach. You could also benefit from meetings with visiting professors and students as well as facilities in more than ten different workshops of Vilnius Academy of Arts in Vilnius.

The Colony provides the necessary living and social conditions to ensure a comfortable environment for the artists-in-residence. Each of the five residencies is set out on two floors with 65 square meters of floor space and is equipped with all the necessary facilities.

The Colony is not only hosting 50 residents per year but also produces shows, publications and educational programmes. In October 2015, when the reconstruction of the last part of NAC building will be over, its size will double and a new department - Nida Doctoral School (NDS) - with a 200 sq. m. showroom (white cube/black box), workstudios and facilities for performing arts will start operating. The school is launched together with Aalto University (Helsinki, FIN). It will be open for other universities and academies to join. The goal of the School is to foster doctoral education in humanities and artistic research and provide intensive courses and residencies for doctoral fellows.

Moreover this year the Colony is organizing Lithuanian Pavilion in the 56th Venice Biennale with a project “Museum” by the Lithuanian artist Dainius Liškevičius. We invite all our friends and supporters to visit our pavilion from 7th of May in Venice.

Please follow application guidelines when applying.

Residencies between June 2015 and May 2016
Recommended duration of a residency is two months; possible duration of a residency is one to four months.

The atmosphere and intensity of residencies differs due to natural and social conditions. Please select the period of the year according to your project and needs: in summer Nida is turning into a busy (however not overcrowded) resort; from June 1st to July 15th and throughout September you will have art, architecture and design students in the house; from October to April you will enjoy solitude interrupted from time to time by art professionals or students arriving to the Colony for their workshops.

No grants are currently available; selected candidates are issued a letter of support for individual grant seeking. Studio and living space rent for selected residents is 400 EUR/month (300 EUR/month in October-May for residents from Lithuania), including all taxes, use of equipment, Wi-Fi, communal spaces and bicycles.

Curatorial proposals
