Open Call: 2023 edition of deSAR (de Sarthe Artist Residency)

Open Call: 2023 edition of deSAR (de Sarthe Artist Residency)

DE SARTHE is pleased to announce Open Call for the upcoming 2023 edition of deSAR (de Sarthe Artist Residency) at our gallery space in Hong Kong.

In a city known for its high rent and small spaces, inaugurated in 2017, deSAR offers to a Hong Kong artist an open-studio residency which takes place in its gallery space in Hong Kong's Southside art district, Wong Chuk Hang. The residency allows the artist to freely create an exhibition within the gallery space for two months, while being open to the public during normal gallery hours, the residency actively encourages audiences to witness as well as engaging a dialogue with the artist.

deSAR aggressively challenges the conventional transition of dynamics between artists' studios and galleries, subverting both the notion of privacy within creation and altering the nature of a gallery space.

Following the residency, the artist will present their creation during a two-week exhibition in DE SARTHE’s gallery space in Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong.
