Inside-Out Art Museum Residency


Location: Beijing, China

Mission: The Artist Residency Program at Inside-Out Art Museum (IOAM) is dedicated to be a non-profit public platform to promote and support young emerging artists, as well as to foster greater interactions between China’s and the international art communities. Through the program, a multifarious art environment will thus be created that gives rise to different international emerging artists to develop meaningful interactions and collaborations with one another.

Located within the Beijing metropolis, the art museum also sits near the borders of hilly regions – an ideal location that offers an undisturbed ambiance for participating artists to devote their time and effort to the making of their art.

Cost: We do not provide any fund support for resident artists. If you want to apply for sponsorship from other institutions, you can get a confirmation letter (not available for applying visa) from the museum.

We do not provide any pick-up service from the airport. We can pick you up from the nearest bus station – ‘Xi Ping Zhuang Station’ only. You can call us when you have arrived at either the station or in front of our museum. Our staff will be there to guide you.

The following are paid by the artist:
– Travelling expenses to and from Beijing
– The materials fee for studio activities
– Living expenses during the Residency period
– Other foreseen expenses to be incurred during residency

Application Fee: There is no application fee. Successful applicants will be notified and scheduled on a first come first served basis. Once your application has been approved, you have to pay 100 US dollars/ 80 Euros as deposit for the furniture in your accommodation after your arrival.

Number of Artists: Up to 11 artists at a time

Accommodations: In order to meet the needs of the program’s resident artist in his or her accommodation and work, IOAM will provide a space with two private bedrooms and one shared studio. As part of the residency, there will also be basic furniture and household appliances provided for the artists’ use. Resident artists can also make use of the kitchen and the utensils for their own convenience.

We provide all resident artists with a quilt cover, bed linen, bed sheet, washing powder, shampoo and other public toiletries. Personal toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste and cleaning towels are not provided. You are able to acquire such items at the convenience stores within the museum’s vicinity. Food such as milk, bread, juice will only be provided on the first day of arrival. There will be no meals provided for resident artists subsequently.

Before your arrival at the studio, we will ensure the state of cleanliness in the studio. However, resident artists are required to take care of the hygiene and cleanliness of the accommodation upon taking over them. If the studio is not as clean and tidy as when you moved in, we will charge you RMB 100 as cleaning fee.
