Spring in Beijing at Red Gate Residency

Spring is a wonderful time to be in Beijing. Mild weather and many art happenings in the region.

Red Gate Residency has March and April residencies available.

Due to a vacancy on short notice, Red Gate is happy to accept applications for a one- or two-month residency in March-April 2017. Spring is a wonderful time to be in Beijing. The weather is mild, the rush of summer tourism has yet to hit and there are many major art events in the region and other happenings in Beijing:

Gallery Weekend (Beijing): March 17-19

"The New Normal: Art and China in 2017," UCCA (Beijing): March 19-July 8

Art Central (Hong Kong): March 21-25

Art Basel (Hong Kong): March 23-25

"Enigma of Existence," Red Gate Gallery (Beijing): April 22-May 7

Art Beijing (Beijing): April 29-May 2

Red Gate Residency provides artists, curators, writers and academics with the opportunity to live and work in China.  Fully self-contained apartments and studios are available either in the heart of Beijing, or within an artists' community outside the fifth ring road. Residencies are offered for periods of between 1 and 6 months.

Red Gate helps all participants connect with the contemporary art scene, meet local Chinese artists and source art materials. We provide the necessary support and encouragement to help you get the most out of your residency and make your time productive and enjoyable. All residents are invited to Red Gate Gallery events at the historic Ming Dynasty Watchtower. We also arrange a welcome dinner to enable residents to meet one another. 

Our program is managed on a not-for-profit basis under the care of Red Gate Gallery. We do not receive outside funding, so most of our residents attend with the help of funding they have received from their countries. Participants pay a program fee, which covers accommodation, airport pickup, a welcome packet containing maps, guide books, and taxi guide, orientation, Wi-Fi, a welcome dinner and the use of a mobile phone for the duration of the residency. Residents are expected to cover the cost food, public transportation, supplies, entertainment and other incidentals.
