In-situ | Hong Kong Artist Residency

(+852) 5347-6565

In-situ is based in the energetic metropolis of Hong Kong. Known for its iconic skyscrapers and fast-paced lifestyle, Hong Kong is a modern international city that is still deeply rooted in its Chinese cultural heritage. As a top travel destination in Asia, Hong Kong is a very easy city for international visitors to explore given its world-class public transit system, walkability, and wide use of English.

As an influential art hub in the Asia Pacific region, Hong Kong hosts the Art Basel art fair, many prominent art galleries, and the M+ Museum. Residents will have access to a private studio within a supportive creative community and a robust communal woodshop. We regularly organize artist talks, open studios, introductions to local artists and art professionals, and keep residents updated with the latest gallery openings and cultural events.

Residency Programme since: 2017
Description of Organisation:

In-situ is Latin for “in place”. We are a multidisciplinary artist residency for creatives who want to explore Hong Kong and its culture “in place”. We are less focused on final outcomes, and instead, encourage rigorous experimentation and exploration to develop new ways of thinking or making. We also don’t ask for detailed proposals or project schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed by spending time here. This is why longer residency periods of two to three months are encouraged.
