The Chinese European Art Center (CEAC) Artist-in-Residence Program announces an upcoming Open Call for periods start from January 1, 2020 for residency in the city Xiamen, southeast of China.
The Chinese European Art Cente (CEAC) was founded as a joint venture with the Xiamen University Art College in 1999. The foundation has been initiated by Mrs. Ineke Gudmundsson from the Netherlands with the cooperation of Prof. Qin Jian from the Xiamen University Art College.
The Art Center is located in a very nice and old neighbourhood called Siming District in Xiamen and with many different small restaurants and a shopping center for small shops, markets and pubs near by the Nanputuo temple and Xiamen University. The exhibition space has an area of about 70 square meters. At this simple while carefully-planned place, art pieces are displayed, including sculptures and graphic works. The CEAC exhibition calendar consists of ten to twelve exhibitions annually from invited artists/residents with supplementary programs such as lecture, workshop, festival and outdoor film. And since 2010 large group exhibitions have been held in Shanghai, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Quanzhou and in Djupivogur, Iceland.
The CEAC artists-in-residence program gives artists, designers, architects, curators, writers, composers a place where they can develop ideas, experiment and produce new work. The CEAC advises artists on how to produce their work outside their studio and shares with them a large network of local artists, companies and work sites to enable them to implement their projects in the best possible way.
The CEAC stimulates a cultural and intellectual exchange between residents, local artists and students of Xiamen University. Residents can be invited to give lectures or presentations about their work and guest seminars and workshops for students.
