In recent years, the city of Shanghai has become an integral hub for Asia’s burgeoning art and photography worlds. With a rich multicultural and cosmopolitan history that blends the East and West, Shanghai offers a unique portal into Chinese civilization that frames the city as the embodiment of China's future.
This unique four week program emphasizes the exploration of Shanghai and encourages the integration of Western and Eastern photographic practices. Participants engage with the Shanghai art community and have individual and group critiques, with the goal of seeing their world and their work from a more global perspective. Along with an intimate investigation of Shanghai’s contemporary art world, there are individual portfolio reviews by prominent members of Shanghai’s photography community that provide the opportunity to share ideas and network with curators and gallery owners as well as colleagues.
Deadline is April 15, 2011. For more information, see their website:
