Moderated by Dr Geoff Raby, this panel will explore the artist residency model and its effect on the global contexts and influences on contemporary artists working between China and internationally.
Brian Wallace, founder of Red Gate Gallery will introduce the gallery and take the audience on a short tour, and will give an account of its long-running international artist-in-residence program. Australian artist Laurens Tan will discuss his own experiences as a resident artist in many countries and how this “transnationalism” has informed his practice. Zhang Zhaohui, whose exhibition opens at Red Gate on this same day, will examine the impact of the artist residency model on Chinese contemporary artists’ engagement with the world. And Lesley Alway will outline Asialink’s residency program, which has sent Australian artists all over Asia for more than twenty years.
