THE FACTORY & TIMES MUSEUM | ‘ALL THE WAY SOUTH RESIDENCY IN EXCHANGE’ IN 2020
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is pleased to announce a collaboration with Times Museum (Guangzhou, China) — ‘All the Way South Residency in Exchange’ in 2020.
In the summer of 2020, The Factory will host one artist from China for a one-month residency in Ho Chi Minh City. In return, one Vietnamese artist will be invited to Guangzhou by Times Museum. After the exchange, one of the two selected artists will be granted with a production fund based on a proposal developed in response to these geopolitical coordinates.
“All the Way South” Residency Exchange“ situates artist research and production in a rich and complex constellation of the souths by revisiting, re-interrogating and recuperating undercurrents of culture across national and ideological borders. Historically, Canton-where Guangdong Times Museum is located in-was the port of colonial trade and subaltern migration between China and the Souths of the world. Over the past thirty years, such trajectories and imageries have been largely overshadowed by the accelerated capital and material flow. By consolidating direct circuits between southern China and the souths of the world, and by supporting research-oriented residencies and commissions, the exchange aims at creating new agencies of south-south resonance and cosmopolitanism.
