The CMBB Para Site International Art Residency (PS IAR) aims to promote the generation of art and ideas through the introduction of invited artists, curators and writers to Hong Kong. As the inaugural residency programme run by Para Site, PS IAR is conceptualised as a research period of up to two months where participants are encouraged to engage with the local and regional art scene through studio visits, talks, screenings, performances and other activities. At the same time, PS IAR hopes to become a platform to facilitate potential future opportunities and collaborations between Hong Kong, Para Site and the participants. PS IAR is an invitation-based programme and is currently unable to process unsolicited applications.
This residency programme is generously supported by CMBB Cultural Organisation.
