Spring Studio visits at Chisenhale Studios

A number of student groups have visited Chisenhale Studios this Spring, including from Chelsea College of Art, Kensington and Chelsea College, Art and Design at Writtle College in Essex, and the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury. Groups have visited artists including Alicia Apaz, Uliana Apatina, Matt Calderwood, Ed Chell, Kate Hardy, Ingrid Kerma and Tim Knowles, in order to learn more about their practice and life as a professional artist.

Chisenhale Studios is home to forty established and emerging artists who work in a wide variety of ways, reflecting the diversity of contemporary artistic practice.

Guided visits can be organised for groups, such as from schools and universities. There is also potential for visits to be tailored around specific topics or types of practice.
