Red Gate Residency is an international artist residency program, providing artists, curators, writers, and academics with the opportunity to live and create work in China. Their objective is to provide facilities for artists/writers to easily start their projects and offer a community in which they can participate as much as they like.

As a member of RES ARTIS, the International Association of Residential Arts Centres, they are committed to the promotion of multicultural art dialogue within an immersion setting.

Red Gate assists all participants to connect with the art scene, meet local Chinese artists and to source art materials. They provide the necessary support and encouragement to help participants get the most out of their stay here.

This year, the recipient will be awarded a one month, all expense covered residency at Chateau La Napoule, the residency space of the La Napoule Art Foundation. This will ultimately realize in an exhibition in New Delhi.


Red Gate Residency Program has a number of available, ready to use, fully self-contained studio/ lofts, offering residents accommodations in a unique location in Beijing, China.
