Introduction

「燕岭青年艺术家驻地计划」是由燕岭文化传播发起并开展的一个艺术驻地项目,落地于东莞首家艺术生活体验空间——燕岭园。

Young Yan Artists Residence Program is launched by Yan Concept Limited. The current residence venue is Yan Garden, an artful and cultural living space located in Dongguan.

驻地参与者在此以东莞为基地,辐射周边城市地区,将大湾区作为研究对象,通过对驻地周边地区的社会人文环境进行考察、研究以及驻地期间走访周边艺术机构、艺术交流等活动,聚焦具体的区域特性,了解当地文化艺术氛围。同时也可与其他艺术家分享和交流了解世界艺术前沿信息,由此突破自身常规的艺术创作语境,展开不同维度的探索和更加多元的思考,创作出更为优秀、更有思考性的作品,在艺术舞台上获得展示个人才华的机会。

The inspiration of art creation for participants will be based on Dongguan, then spreads to its surrounding cities, and covers the whole Greater Bay Area later on. Through on-site study and investigation of the local society and culture plus the site visiting and communication opportunities with nearby art institutions, the participants are more likely to acquire an in-depth understanding about the local community; meanwhile, interactions with local artists could also be inspiring, which may provide them with some more insights and the trend of art. These would all be helpful and meaningful.

自驻地项目开展以来,已悉收来自海内外三十多个国家和地区的申请。2020年,「燕岭青年艺术家驻地计划」在原有艺术家驻地的基础上,特别增设面向独立策展人的特邀及公开招募,希望能为艺术各个领域的创作者、研究者提供更多不同的艺术生产环境。

Since the start of this program, there are already applications from more than 30 countries and regions. In 2020, with the purpose of expanding the art creation fields and possibilities for participants from various backgrounds, the residence program will also open to Curators alongside Artists.

每位驻地参与者需在驻地期间完成并展示其全新的驻地创作作品和项目研究成果,优秀的艺术家有机会参与于全年度驻地结束后主办的驻地项目艺术联展,更有机会获得举办个人展览或研究成果出版的机会。优秀的策展方案将有机会得到燕岭文化传播提供的展览资金支持,实现展览项目的落地实施。

Every resident participant will need to complete and present their outcomes during the stay. Outstanding artists will have the opportunity to join in the group exhibition about Young Yan Artists Residence Program when the whole season finished; there are also chances for them to host a solo exhibition and publish works. Curators with excellent performance may receive a sponsorship from Yan Concept Limited to implement the curation project.
