Artist exchanges

Artists in Residence Enschede has also participated in annual exchanges with our partner city Dalian. In August, in place of a single Chinese artist, a group of artists completed a residency in Enschede.This exhibition emerged from the warm collaboration between Enschede, the Dalian Zhongshan Art Museum (China) and ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede).

Conversely, two Enschede artists, Willemijn Calis and Maarten van Aken, travelled to Dalian for their six-week residency. From 22 September to the beginning of November, the Dutch artists discovered Dalian while living, working and mounting exhibitions in the city.
