Residency: Introduction and History
 

Red Gate Residency is an international artists residency program providing artists, curators, writers, and academics with the opportunity to live and create work in China.
 
Our objective is to provide facilities for artists to easily start their projects and offer a community in which they can participate as much as they like.
 
As a member of
ResArtisResidency UnlimitedTransArtists​ and China Residencies, we are committed to the promotion of multicultural arts dialogue within an immersion setting.
 
Red Gate assists all participants to connect with the art scene, meet local Chinese artists and to source art materials. We provide the necessary support and encouragement to help you get the most out of your stay here. We help get you settled, show you around, tell you where to buy the best Peking Duck, which part of the Great Wall not to go to, and where and when the latest openings are. All residents are invited to Red Gate Gallery events, including private dinners after the openings.
 
The Red Gate Care Package covers airport pickup, a welcome packet with everything from local maps, guide books, and a taxi guide, orientation, internet hook-up and local phone, as well as a welcome dinner for you to meet the other residents. In addition, we also keep all our residents up to date on gallery openings and other occasions. We are here for our residents regarding any concerns or needs that they may have during their stay.
 
The Red Gate community is so engaged and I formed lifelong friendships with some of the fellow residents and the other artists living in Feijiacun. It is an excellent introduction to the art community in Beijing.  Red Gate Gallery is doing vital and honorable work in China connecting Chinese and international artists together and supporting the art industry.  A highly recommended and very unique experience.

Program Partners
Red Gate Gallery is supporting the residency programs of  Associação Cultural VideobrasilAsia New Zealand Foundation,  Cultural Forum of AustriaDavidoff Art Initiative Goethe-Institut China,and Red Mansion Foundation.



Application
Our program is managed on a not-for-profit basis by Red Gate Gallery. Though Red Gate covers the management and maintenance of all facilities, we are unable to cover the actual costs of renting or providing other forms of financial support, such as a stipend for living expenses, materials or airfare. As there is currently no funding available in China for initiatives like ours, participants are expected to cover the costs of living, studios, and accommodation whilst Red Gate provides all the necessary support to make your time here fruitful and enjoyable.


Residents come from overseas by funding themselves or seeking funding from arts organizations in their own country. We work with artists who can organize their own funds and or have received grants to cover their residency. In addition, we are partnered with multiple cultural organizations that have the interest and resources to send artists here. Applicants are encouraged to seek funding from relevant organizations in their own country. Once accepted, Red Gate will provide letters of support to assist with grant applications.
 
We ask that all applicants apply using our ONLINE APPLICATION FORM. Please be sure to review this form in its entirity before beginning your application. Once you begin you will not be able to save, only submit.
 
The length of residencies range from 1 month to 6 months (we prefer to take bookings by the month). Applications are received on a rolling basis. Although at times we may have last minute space available, our facilities commonly fill six months in advance so we encourage an early application.

驻地项目: 介绍和历史

 

红门国际驻地项目是一个国际的艺术家驻地项目,为艺术家,策展人,作家和学者提供在北京驻留和创作的机会。
我们的目标是为艺术家提供设施以便开展他们的创作,并且提供一个他们可以乐于融入的社区。
作为ResArtisResidency Unlimited, TransArtists​ China Residencies的一员,我们致力于促进多元文化在一个浸入式的环境中进行对话。
红门驻地帮助所有的驻地人员与艺术场地联系,与中国艺术家会面和提供艺术材料资源。我们提供必要的支持和鼓励,以帮助实现艺术家驻留期间最大的成效。我们帮助艺术家安置下来,向艺术家展示周边情况,告诉艺术家哪里买最好的北京烤鸭,哪里看最好的长城,共享最新的开幕和活动信息。邀请艺术家参加红门画廊的展览开幕和晚宴。
红门驻地提供的帮助有:接机,最新北京地图,导览手册,出租车手册,介绍,上网指南,当地手机卡,欢迎晚宴等等。我们介绍驻地艺术家互相认识,提供最新的展览资讯,始终帮助解决艺术家驻地期间可能遇到的任何疑问和困难。
 
以前的驻地艺术家评价:
红门驻地项目非常的积极活跃,在村子里生活驻留期间,我跟很多其他的驻地艺术家建立了一辈子的友谊。红门驻地对北京艺术圈做了极好的介绍。红门驻地为连接中国和国际艺术家,以及支持艺术产业做了极其重要和光荣的努力。这是一个值得高度推荐的独特体验。

项目申请
我们的项目是红门画廊旗下的一个非营利项目。红门将提供设备的管理,但不负担租金以及其它形式的资金支持。例如:生活费,材料费和机票费。目前中国范围内还没有向我们的项目这样活跃的基金支持,驻地艺术家需要自己负担生活费用,工作室费用等,红门将提供力所能及的必要的支持,以帮助艺术家的驻留更加丰富多彩。
来自海外的艺术家们通过申请基金或者自费来这里。我们也有一些合作伙伴会定期推送艺术家过来。我们鼓励艺术家们从各自国家的相关组织那里申请基金。红门接受艺术家申请后,会对艺术家申请基金提供推荐信帮助。
我们要求所有的申请函必须网上填写。申请之前请认真阅读整个表格。一旦开始填写,不能够保存,只能够直接提交。
驻地时长一般1个月到6个月不等。(我们鼓励工作室按月份预订)我们不断接收申请函。我们的工作室通常提前6个月就会订满,只偶尔会有临近日期的入驻,因此我们鼓励艺术家尽早申请。
项目费用,初步要求和申请函提交问题请发邮件给我们。除了在线申请提交以外,请将您的其他材料邮寄到如下地址:
