Live@RAM: Artist in Residency During "Felix Gonzalez-Torres" Open for Application
Platform: Education
  • Live@RAM ── Artist in Residency

    As one of its major initiatives towards connecting the museum with the forefront exploration of contemporary art and with the public, RAM is happy to announce the new public program for performative art, “Live at RAM”. Drawing on RAM’s unique spaces and excellent exhibition programs, Live@RAM is dedicated to artists active at the forefront of performative practices – practices involving the use of body, which may otherwise be known as contemporary dance, performance art, sound art, new media, experimental music/theatre, or inter-disciplinary projects, under different circumstances. The program combines a 10-day residency at the museum, which leads to a live presentation to the public in the exhibition spaces at RAM at the end. Coinciding with the museum’s annual exhibition program, Live@RAM provides 3 residencies a year, open to applications from all over the world.


    Unlike the black box of a theatre or a white box in a museum, the spaces at RAM combine western and Chinese elements and change as the exhibition requires. These challenges make the performances at RAM so different from those happening on the stage.


    Moreover, set in spatial and intellectual conversation with the works of the on-going exhibitions, the performances would enjoy a new, provocative framework which provides enriched experiences and meaning-making of the work itself as well as the exhibition on site. The proximity between the performer and the audience would also enable intensive emotional and bodily interactions between the audiences and the artists, which is a rare challenge in other circumstances.
