Dongdong & Lulu Artist Residency


DongDong & LuLu Artist Residency was established in October 2010 by Chinese curator and program director Coral LU.

DongDong & LuLu Artist Residency Program is an international artists residency program providing artists, curators, writers, and academics with the opportunity to live and create work in four main locations: Beijing, Nanjing, Hohhot and Taiwan.

Our objective is to provide facilities for artists to easily start their projects and offer a community in which they can participate as much as they like. As a member of RES ARTIS, the International Association of Residential Arts Centers, we are committed to the promotion of multicultural arts dialogue within an immersion setting DongDong & LuLu Artist Residency assists all participants to connect with the art scene, meet local Chinese artists and to source art materials. We provide the necessary support and encouragement to help artists get the most out of your stay here. Lectures, art presentations, workshops, open studios, solo exhibitions, and group exhibitions are main forms for broad and deep interactions among artists, students and the public.

At the conclusion of the residency, artists are invited to present their research project at DongDong & LuLu Artist Residency Studio, or we can help to organize presentation spots in other cities in China. And, for those who like to travel, DongDong & LuLu Artist Residency can recommend travel agencies or assistant artists to research travel information.
