Ailleurs Residency is an international artist-in-residence program founded by Ailleurs Museum in Shenyang, China. After Forty years of reform and opening-up, while the economy is transforming, the urbanization has caused Shenyang to lose a lot of factories and old houses. Ailleurs museum plays as one of the forces in which to protect cultural and industrial remains and we hope to reshape Shenyang culture with industrial civilization.
