May 2013

The Davidoff Art Initiative is extending the cultural patronage to Asia. It will underwrite a residency for a Caribbean visual artist each year in Beijing, at the Red Gate Gallery Residency as part of the Davidoff Art Residency program; and it will host discussion events on “Art collecting in China,” as part of Davidoff Art Dialogues, in collaboration with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing.

Davidoff Art Initiative goes Asia

Red Gate Gallery Residency, Beijing

Red Gate Gallery Residency in Beijing is the third international partner residency location to be announced by the Davidoff Art Initiative, joining the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York and Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Red Gate Gallery Residency is an international artist residency program providing artists, curators, writers, and academics an opportunity to live and work in China.

Davidoff Art Dialogues in collaboration with Ullens Center for Contemporary Art

An important dimension of the Davidoff Art Initiative will be a series of dialogues that the program will host worldwide, independently and in partnership with art organizations, to share information and offer opportunities for discussion for experts and art enthusiasts about current issues and trends in contemporary art and art collecting. The inaugural project of this series will be hosted in collaboration between the Davidoff Art Initiative and Beijing’s Ullens Center for Contemporary Art. Dialogues on “Art collecting in China” will be a two-part series of events taking place in fall 2013 in Hong Kong and in spring 2014 in Beijing. The events will bring together key figures in the Chinese and international art worlds to explore different facets of art collecting.
