Jardin Orange (“Orange Garden”) is a new artist residency in the north of Shenzhen, China. It has been host to and seeks to promote talented artists both from within China as well as to bring international artists to the burgeoning Chinese market. The overall mission of the project is to become an active participant in the region’s artistic growth as well as to become a “magnet” residency that attracts and supports young artists in their careers. Artists come here to be culturally flexible, push beyond their comfort zone, to work hard and to experiment with new forms of personal expression that they haven’t tried before.
Jardin Orange Artist Residency shares a filial partnership with the Montresso* Foundation (http://montresso.com/en), one of Europe’s most recognised art collections that is known to support young and talented artists across the world. We share a philosophical kinship, also, with Jardin Rouge Artist Residency in Marrakech, Morocco. Eventually, JO aspires to share its artists and online social media platforms in order to create an intercultural dialogue between distant parts of the world.
