Studio4 Residency – Ryan Curtis

All but one small

Ryan Curtis, in his first long term residency, will instigate a body of work that uses journey forms between sites of contemporary monuments as semi-ritualistic starting points for making sculptural and installation based work. Ryan will also be using the residency to support recent commissions and upcoming exhibitions. Critical exchange and engagement will be the key to the success of this residency, so expect to see some blogging, open crits…and possibly the production of a “low-fi” publication in collaboration with an independent printer or arts publisher.

Ryan will be in Studio4 during July, August and September 2014.
