Founded in 1991 by Brian Wallace who first arrived in China in 1984, Red Gate Gallery is the first private contemporary art gallery to be established in China. Prior to opening its doors at the 600-year old Ming dynasty watchtower in Dongbianmen, Brian Wallace has started from the late 80s to organize and curate exhibitions for young Chinese artists in other exotic locations such as the Ancient Observatory Tower.

Today, Red Gate is recognized both as a tour de force and trail blazer in the history and development of the contemporary Chinese art scene. Over the last 20 years, the gallery has been engaging and promoting Chinese artists by exhibiting the best of Chinese contemporary art as well as facilitating cultural exchanges and dialogues between China and the rest of the world through its vibrant residency program established in 2001.

 

Red Gate Residency is an international artists residency program providing artists, curators, writers, and academics with the opportunity to live and create work in China.

Our objective is to provide facilities for artists to easily start their projects and offer a community in which they can participate as much as they like.

As a member of RES ARTIS, the International Association of Residential Arts Centers, we are committed to the promotion of multicultural arts dialogue within an immersion setting.

Red Gate assists all participants to connect with the art scene, meet local Chinese artists and to source art materials. We provide the necessary support and encouragement to help you get the most out of your stay here. We help get you settled, show you around, tell you where to buy the best Peking Duck, which part of the Great Wall not to go to, and where and when the latest openings are. All residents are invited to Red Gate Gallery events, including private dinners after the openings.
