Robert H N Ho curatorial residency programme


Asia Art Archive (AAA) announces the 2014 call for proposals for The Robert H N Ho Family Foundation Greater China Curatorial Residency Programme.

With support from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, the grant offers a one-year fellowship to support curators interested in developing historical or research-oriented art exhibitions relating to contemporary art in China. The grantee will be awarded a total of US$15,000 and is expected to spend up to two months conducting research at AAA in Hong Kong.

Applicants are welcome to propose their own topics, but encouraged to draw on AAA’s extensive collection of primary documents from Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. Applicants can develop proposals for exhibitions that explore specific periods of time, themes, or phenomenon in Chinese art from an art historical perspective. Proposals may also be part of a larger curatorial project which frames China and Chinese art within a broader context.

Eligible applicants
Both institutional and independent curators and scholars are eligible to apply. Those who have experience in research and curatorial practice related to contemporary Chinese art are preferred.

Proposal Deadline: Friday 17 May 2014, 10pm (HKT)

Project completion
The selected project is expected to begin in July 2014 and be completed by July 2015. 


Together with a panel of judges that includes professional curators and scholars in the field, AAA will assess and select applicants based on their knowledge of contemporary Chinese art, relevant experience in the field, proposed methodology, and the substance of the proposed research, as well as its practicability and feasibility
