About City of Zurich Artist-in-residence Programme

Supported by the Kultur Stadt Zürich and Migros Kulturprozent in 2013, the City of Zurich Artist-in-Residence Programme for Young International Artists provided an artist studio and apartment at Pfingsweidstrasse, Zurich. Through studio-based residency in close proximity of the Toni-Areal Campus of ZHdK, supported by ZHdKs facilities and network, this programme aims to help postgraduates from various disciplines across the arts (fine arts, media arts, photography, film/theatre, dance/performance) transition to professional practice.

The programme has since supported 8 emerging visual artists from Asia to spend an up to six months period in Zürich, during when they engaged in artistic experimentation and research, conducted cross-disciplinary work and pursued work beyong their own discipline. They are Frank Tang, Shiyu Gao, Ivanhoe Lam, Chloe Cheuk, Trevor Yeung, Joao Vasco Paiva, Yik Chow and Tedi En.
