<Residency Host Organizations>
Chronus Art Center (Shanghai, China): Established in 2013, Chronus Art Center (CAC) is China’s first nonprofit art organization dedicated to the presentation, research / creation and scholarship of media art. CAC with its exhibitions, residency-oriented programs, lectures and workshops and through its archiving and publishing initiatives, creates a multifaceted and vibrant platform for the discourse, production and dissemination of media art in a global context. CAC is positioned to advance artistic innovation and cultural awareness by critically engaging with media technologies that are transforming and reshaping contemporary experiences.
During the residency, when a condition of continuous health emergency and accelerating social economic conflicts permeate the world, CAC expects to engage with a research-oriented program whose outcome will be a publication that peer into the impending post-human reality and respond to the current challenges or opportunities that contemporary digital society has/would induce(d).
4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Sydney, Australia): 4A fosters excellence and innovation in contemporary culture through the commissioning, presentation, documentation and research of contemporary art. Our program is presented throughout Australia and Asia, where we ensure that contemporary art plays a central role in understanding and developing the dynamic relationship between Australia and the wider Asian region.
During the residency, if desired, the resident will be able to participate in 4A's ceramic, digital media, and experimental performance exhibitions and programming.
Gendai (Toronto, Canada): Gendai's activities are focused on investing in racialized arts practitioners as the next generation of cultural leaders, radical thinkers & visionaries who embody new pathways towards more equitable futures. Gendai has general interest in research around issues of decolonization, collective values, working/labour conditions, alternative governance, and radical allyship. We formed Gendai MA MBA, a think tank for racialized collectives to reimagine institutional practice.
During the residency, if desired, the resident will be able to participate in Gendai CO-OP, a cross-institutional co-learning space and accountability program that addresses racial equity in the cultural sector by centering on the perspectives of BIPOC artists and arts workers.
