Three Shadows Beijing Artist-in-Residency Program



Three Shadows Photography Art Centre is the leading art space in China dedicated solely to photography and new media. We welcome artists to come live and work inside our Ai Weiwei-designed grounds in a quiet corner of Beijing. Resident artists are encouraged to design a unique program during their stay—e.g. creating new commissions, collaborating with other artists in Beijing, or teaching workshops in the area. Although the AIR program is primarily tailored to photographers, Three Shadows also gladly accepts artists working in other media, as well as researchers and curators interested in living and working in China.

Now accepting applicants for March 2018. Note that this is not a free program—artists must provide fees during their stay. Please email any inquiries to with subject line "Three Shadows Artist-in-Residence."
