HOW Art Museum is pleased to announce that the HOW International Curatorial Residency Program continues in 2019. Through the Open Call we cordially invite curators, scholars, art critics and writers worldwide who are interested in extending their knowledge and getting deeper insights of Chinese contemporary art scene, along with expanding professional network in this region.

Co-sponsored by HOW Art Museum and Onehome Art Hotel, HOW International Curatorial Residency Program was initiated in 2018. The program offers short-term and intensive, typically spanning from 7 to 30 days residencies at the HOW Art Museum (Shanghai). During the course of the residency, for all curators-in-residence our team will provide individualized arrangements, including visits to museums, galleries, alternative spaces, artist studios along with meetings with art professionals. Hence, that will allow participants deepen their proposed research and broaden professional connections. Provided that the time of the stay exceeds two weeks, participants are also invited to take a trip to HOW Art Museum (Wenzhou), the Museum’s branch in the city of Wenzhou which locates 470 km away from Shanghai.

Furthermore, all participants will have chance to collaborate and engage with the work of the HOW Art Museum’s curatorial team at the museum office. As an outcome of the residency, participants are required to produce an article or report, and organize a public event such as a lecture at HOW Art Museum (Shanghai) or HOW Art Museum (Wenzhou).

The program provides accommodation at Onehome Art Hotel (Shanghai) with selected meals and working space at HOW Art Museum (Shanghai). The travel costs won't be included.
