Practice makes Perfect – An Engage London Area Group Meeting

On Thursday 22 November, Chisenhale Art Place hosted an event for engage members.
The event explored the impact of direct contact with professional artists on the learning experience.

Participants heard presentations by artists and educators from Chisenhale Art Place, Whitechapel Gallery and V&A, which was then followed with a group discussion around studio practice and participation.  The event finished with a tour of Chisenhale Art Place, ending with everyone attending the preview of the current Chisenhale Gallery exhibition.

Studio4 Residencies

Chisenhale Studios are offering free* use of Studio4, their new project space, to other artists seeking short-term studio space to execute a project.   These residencies will be available in six-eight week blocks, and are interspersed throughout the coming year with projects, experiments and events curated or delivered by visual artists in our other 39 studios.  The aim of each residency is to provide opportunity for an external visual artist to experiment with new work or ideas in a fresh, uncluttered space that facilitates sharing and participation while making artistic processes visible to new audiences.

In exchange for use of the studio, artists undertaking residencies will be expected to share their work through a small public event or sharing in the studio at the end of the period.   Ideally, smaller open-door sessions could also happen during the residency, as an opportunity to engage with other Chisenhale members.

We are currently inviting proposals for the next two residencies which will run  March/April and June/July 2013.  Deadline for applications is 10th January.

To apply, please write to tell us about the project or idea you are working on, why you need this short-term studio to realise it and for how long.  Please also include how you would share your work, or working process,  at the end of the period and at any points along the way.  And of course, include your current CV and up to five images of your work or a link to a website.

Please note that due to the nature of the project space, and its first floor location in the building (there is no lift), the final sharing is best suited for small audiences of about 30 people.  It is not a gallery, so not suitable for open exhibition.

 

The first residency for Studio4 has been awarded to Vivienne Griffin. During December and January, Vivienne will produce works on paper and test installation pieces for a solo show in February.

 

 

*there is no charge for the studio space but electricity will be metered and payable at end of the period.
