Applications are now open for the 4A 2014 Beijing Studio Program.

Through this initiative, two early career artists will embark on a one month-long residency in September at the studios of renowned Chinese Australian artist Shen Shaomin.

4A’s Beijing Studio Program provides a unique opportunity for the selected artists to research new projects in rich cultural surroundings, build professional networks and observe the changes taking place in one of the most important cities in the Asia region.

On return to Australia artists will be invited to present their experiences in a public forum and make a proposal for an exhibition at 4A. If successful they will be mentored by 4A in the development of an exhibition in 2015.

The program covers airfares, accommodation, daily meals and a small stipend. Moreover it will provide an ongoing professional mentorship, cross-cultural exchange and access to 4A’s networks across China.

Applications are now open and close 6.00PM Tuesday 10 June 2014.
