Both Sides Now residency programme
Both Sides Now supports four artists in residence in 2015, enabling the programme to benefit practitioners, and to further support cultural exchange between China and the UK.
Two artists from each country will exchange, working at cultural institutions, where they will have access to local resources and contacts. The aim of the residency programme is to provide artists with the opportunity to explore new practices, develop new work and experience new cultures and share experiences.
The four artists in the programme are: Lucy Clout, Wong Ping, Daniel Shanken and Shi Zheng. The programme is supported by Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (UK), Cinecity + Phoenix Brighton (UK), V Art Center (in association with Chronus Art Center), and Wuhan K11 Art Village.
Supported by the associated organisations, Arts Council England and Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
