Curators-in-residence at CEAC

The CEAC residency allows visiting curators who want to be in China for their work to conduct research.  The residency program also creates opportunities for creative collaborations resulting from direct interaction with artists in many disciplines from the CEAC residency and the local artists network, and with students from the Xiamen University.

The CEAC stimulates a cultural and intellectual exchange between residents, local artists and students at the Literature Department of Xiamen University.  Curators can be invited to give lectures about their work or work of others and guest seminars and workshops for students.

At the conclusion of their residence, curators are invited to present their research project at the Art Center. The CEAC can also help mediate presentation spots in other cities in China and, for those who like to travel, CEAC offers travel advice and assistance (reserving tickets, hotels, getting visas).

Based in the Netherlands, the European branch of the CEAC regularly presents the research results of CEAC residents at various locations to an interested audience.  In addition, the European branch of the CEAC strives to promote an exchange of knowledge and collaboration with fellow specialists and artists in other disciplines by organizing lectures, debates, films and video showings. 

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
