文藝為體,道指人心;機構在地,共生現場。

本體社群建構|Art Community Cultivation:

謀事在人。十方要謀的是一場「大夢」,這大夢必然要一個「沒有邊界」的「十方之眾」一起做。開放·共享·生長是大家共同堅守的核心理念,基於此,不同國家、不同地區、不同領域、不同專業、不同年齡但相同志向的人,聚在一起,做著真誠的自己,也促成了多贏的事情。

People pursue and realize dreams. What DAC wants to pursue is a “big dream,” and this big dream is bound to be done by the “people of all kinds” who have “no boundaries” together. Openness, Sharing, and Growth are the core visions that everyone adheres to. Based on this, people from different countries, regions, practice fields, professions, ages with the same ambitions get together to be sincere, which has also contributed to realizing the big dream.

藝術與區域構建|Art and Regional Contribution:

十方藝術中心坐落在重慶市九龍坡區黃桷坪,這是一個實際的地點、一個豐滿的地方。十方社群中的諸多夥伴,也與這個「地方」有著千絲萬縷、綿長的線索和情感。作為這裡的居民,也作為這裡的在地民間機構,我們很自然、也更具責任感的想到如何將機構的力量與地區構建相輔相成,並實際展開實踐。通過駐留計劃和創研計劃,國內外藝術家、策展人、設計師、創業者、知識份子等,齊聚黃桷坪,在機構的對接和組織下,深入瞭解地區發展階段和相應問題,與當地政府部門、社區公眾交互,以大型復合類「藝術與社會項目」、「社區美育工作坊」、「常態化展覽」等方式,回應區域建構過程中的文化傳承、社群更新、產業升級等問題,其中,還疊合了國內外高校專題項目、基金會項目等。

十方從自身所在的區域,開始探索藝術參與、助力區域構建,獲得先行經驗和成果,並試圖將相關經驗成果進行模式輸出,力求在藝術群體的參與下,更好的回應不同類型的區域構建問題,藝術的定義、概念、可回應的問題、可扮演的角色,在中國廣大而多變的、不同尺度的現場下,仍是混沌而略顯無力的狀態,這一切的嘗試都還在過程中。

Dimensions Art Center is located in Huangjueping, Jiulongpo District, Chongqing. This is a real place and a place with rich content. Many DAC community partners also have inextricable and long-lasting clues and emotions with this “place.” As residents here and as local non-governmental organizations here, we naturally and have a sense of responsibility to think about how to complement the organization’s power and the region’s construction and carry out the practice. Through residency programs and innovative research programs, domestic and foreign artists, curators, designers, entrepreneurs, intellectuals, etc., gathered in Huangjueping to understand regional development related issues under the linkage and organization of institutions. Local government and the public in the community interact with a large-scale composite “art and social projects,” “community aesthetic education workshops,” “exhibitions,” and other forms to respond to cultural heritage, community renewal, and industrial upgrading in the process of regional construction. There are also special projects of domestic and foreign universities and foundation projects.

DAC began to explore art participation and assisted regional construction from the region where it was located, and obtained first-hand experience and results, and tried to export relevant experience results in a model, and strive to better respond to different types of regional construction with the participation of the art community problem. The definition, concepts, responsive questions, and roles that art can play are still chaotic and slightly weak in China’s vast and changeable society at different scales. All these above attempts are still in the process.

社會項目|Social projects:

通過藝術&社會項目的開展,十方在區域藝術生態構建、城市社區營造、傳統產業轉型、新農村建設、文化資源保護等方面實踐著藝術的力量。根據不同的項目類型,組建聯合專業工作團隊,團隊包括項目所需的各專業方向人才,如城市規劃、建築設計師,科學家,社會學者、民間手工藝人、藝術家、策展人、原住族群等,進而滿足項目的各方面專業需求,實現人才的跨界學習和協作。

The DAC art & society projects are designed to contribute to the development of the art and culture industry, shaping urban community life, transforming and upgrading traditional industries, and preserving cultural resources. Professionals such as urban planners, architects, scientists, sociologists, folk art craftsmen, artists, curators and local dwellers are recruited for those projects.
