The Yishu 8 Prize France

This is a three-month residency program at the Maison des Arts de Beijing, with a stipend, accommodation, workshop, and logistical support.



A place dedicated to dialogue and creation whose values are:


  • Theretraditionto be part of a past which gives the present its density and the future its force of invention.


  • Therecreationto dare to take a fresh look at the world and offer it in a piece of life called a work of art.


  • Theretransmissionto share what we don't have but what we want and what we are founded on.


  • THEdialogueto exchange without wanting to impose, to seek surprise in the discovery of the other.


  • The art of livingto give the most everyday gestures the form and simplicity of an art: speaking, listening, savoring.



This artist residency is open to young talents who have already started a career in Europe and wish to discover China to develop a project in line with Chinese thinking and aesthetics.


Painters, videographers, writers, designers, sculptors... The Yishu 8 association allows 3 winners each year to go on a residency in Beijing, thanks to the support of Boucheron. Applications are proposed by the members of the selection committee.
