Residencies | Group Occupation 2012
Artist Residencies for ESP Members at The New Art Gallery Walsall
6 March – 2 June 2012
Deadline: 27 January 2012
Extra Special People (ESP) and The New Art Gallery Walsall (TNAGW) have teamed up to offer Group Occupation, a series of short, practical residencies for nine ESP members. Working in the Artists’ Studio at TNAGW, artists will occupy the space in groups of three for one-month at a time during March, April and May 2012.
Group Occupation will provide artists with support, time and space within a mutually supportive group context in which to develop new work. Artists will be grouped together thoughtfully according to their practice, interests and approach to the residency, encouraging a useful dialogue and possibilities for working together to develop.
Artists will receive critical support from ESP including facilitated critical group discussions for each residency group with a facilitator of their choice. Participants will also take part in an open studio day.
This opportunity is aimed at artists who want to undertake a self-directed residency in the context of a public gallery and who will benefit from the opportunity of working alongside other artists.
Each artist will receive a fee of £350 (including materials)
Deadline for applications: Friday 27 January 2012
Interviews: Wednesday 8 February 2012
Artists working in any medium are eligible to apply.
