Swatch Art Peace Hotel

Blending art and life, the Swatch Art Peace Hotel's landmark heritage building on the Bund in Shanghai is the international location for Swatch's artist residency.


Artist Residency

The Swatch Art Peace Hotel artist residency is designed to bring together artists from around the world to experience a unique cultural environment dedicated to contemporary art in the extraordinary city of Shanghai.

Selected artists are invited to live and work from 3 to 6 months in workshops & apartments on two floors, in a community of 18 people from all artistic horizons and national origins.

The focus of the residency is on creative exchange. Artists are free to engage in individual or joint projects. At the end of their stay, all participants are asked to leave an artistic “trace” of their choice.

Apply now online! There is no deadline and the application fee of 30 Swiss Francs will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Be part of this unique experience and share your creativity!
