The CACHE space is a non-profit art space found in Beijing in October 2016 which mainly focused on collecting, organizing, presenting the “surplus” in contemporary artistic practice and turning it into a “cache” model. It is mainly dedicated to radical art in China and around the world through screening, experimental theatre, situation, panel discussion and online podcast, currently there is a 80 msq space in Beijing 798 Art District.
Cache has now hosted residency programs for three consecutive years and worked with a total of six artists. In association with the Goethe-Institut China, CACHE space provided work stay for artists in all art fields. During a work stay of six to eight weeks in Beijing, each artist who were based in China would have an opportunity to work on their own projects, took in new artistic stimuli and made contact with creative artists. The work stay focused on the artistic creative process and methodology, and explored the meaning of dialogues and communication. And artists presented their projects at the end of the residency program.
