I: project space10 Ban Qiao Hu Tong, DongZhiMen, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing, China, 100009
I: project space is an augmentation of what a contemporary art institution can be, by using the freedom that comes along with running an independent practice. Ultimately, it brings together Antonie Angerer’s & Anna-Viktoria Eschbach’s curatorial and publishing activities.
The space is located in the old Hutong area of Beijing and is combining an exhibition space with a residency studio for visiting artists from China and abroad. Taking its location in the center of Beijing but outside the art districts as a premise, I: project space engages in bringing an interaction with art back into the daily life.
Collaborating with local and international cultural producers, I: project space is constantly building networks with like-minded spaces all over the world to share information and to expand the impact of the independent art scene. Dedicated to build support structures for artists and open possibilities for long-term dialogues between artistic, curatorial, research and other modes of knowledge production I: project space is operating completely non-profit.
Exchange and dialogue should not become empty phrases, but have to be implemented into actions. The programming of the space is framing the residency and exhibitions with an on-going discourse about current questions on contemporary art.
