Artist in Residency project is an important part of Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Art Council’s projects. The objective of the residencies is to stimulate creative and mutual exchange between artists from Switzerland and China. The artists are encouraged to develop their practice in a climate of cultural diversity. Pro Helvetia Shanghai lauched its Swiss artist residency project with MoCA Shanghai since 2015. In 2016, three Swiss artists Beat Lippert, Benoît Billotte, and POL conducted residency in Shanghai and showcased at MoCA Shanghai Pavilion (click on names to see wechat posts). This year, Yves Netzhammer and Charlotte Hug have spent time in China on their residency projects.
