For the third edition of the Crystal Ruth Bell Residency, Red Gate & China Residencies are calling for people who base their practice in research to apply for a funded residency in Beijing for the months of November and December 2016.
Curators, writers, researchers, documentary filmmakers, photographers, choreographers, chefs, designers, developers, activists, scientists, architects, and all kinds of visual artists are encouraged to apply with a project proposal that reflects some of Crystal\’s interests and driving forces: curiosity, dedication, perseverance, words, and maps.
Crystal was always searching, learning, and experimenting. She took photographs and made videos. She created recipes and coined terms. She designed maps and apps. Most of all, she gathered information to share with the world, connected the dots, and put new ideas into practice.
The Crystal Ruth Bell Residency covers:
A live/work apartment in Tuanjiehu in downtown Beijing
Funding towards travel and visa expenses
Airport pickups, welcome dinner and orientation upon arrival
Project support and coordination
Artist talks or workshops (optional)
USD $1,000 research stipend (enough to cover meals and daily living expenses in Beijing)
