2023 Summer Artist in Residency Hong Kong

TongLau Space

No Funding
Kowloon, Hong Kong


The AIR program in Hong Kong is mainly hosted by institutions, museums and art centers. Limited space and high rents have always been problems in Hong Kong, and it is difficult for art associations and independent artist studios to provide housing, studios and exhibition spaces for short-term overseas artists. However, we firmly believe that the AIR program is not only good for Hong Kong, but also for artists around the world. We hope to create more opportunities for artists who are passionate about art, cultural exchange, and interested in exploring Hong Kong culture and creating new art in Hong Kong. We welcome artists with different identities to join our program, such as experienced artists and art students from overseas.
