Program Description

RU will cover the airfare cost to Shanghai and return from wherever the winning artist is located, as well as a stipend. PCCA will provide accommodation and studio space for thirty days as well as resources determined on a case to case basis. The artist will be invited to organize a public program (lecture or workshop) for the local art community. Founded in 2017, PCCA’s 21, 500 sq ft surface incorporates a residency program with studios and accommodation, galleries for exhibition and public education activities, as well as a theater and archival database. Through its residency, PCCA looks to foster a new cultural context both respectful of local tradition and open to international cultures. The residency program brings together artists, curators, writers, musicians, scientists, researchers, and interdisciplinary experts selected based on the relevance of their projects.
