Standpoint Futures: A new Residency Collaboration


Standpoint Futures: A new Residency Collaboration

We’re delighted to announce a new collaboration that will see the Standpoint Futures Residencies taking place in our Studio4 in 2017. This will replace our existing residency programme for the time being.

Standpoint Futures is a residency programme for UK artists based outside Greater London, providing bespoke, high calibre opportunities for discussion and interaction with the London art world.  These visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid career artists and are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency’s chief aims are to provide high quality, individualised opportunities to develop the artist’s practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.

Residencies are 6 weeks long and will run from mid-January to August 2017. We will be selecting three artists: two from England, one from Wales. One residency is designated for an ‘early career’ artist.

Artists receive: studio, accommodation, significant mentoring and development, plus modest per diem & travel allowance. Application process opens 1st August, and the deadline for applications is Tuesday 6 September. Interviews will be here at Chisenhale Studios on Tuesday 4 October

There is an application fee of  £16.00, which helps covers the cost of the selection process.

Summer Residencies in Studio4

Our Studio4 Summer Residencies have been selected. Throughout July, three artists from Wimbledon MFA – Anna Shelley, Daniel Curtis and Molly Rose Butt – will be working collaboratively to explore the composite possibilities of their practices by remixing fragments of images, objects and ideas through a series of material-based conversations and participatory walks. During August and September, Byzantia Harlow will be developing her research into local street markets, extending her practice of aesthetically intervening in and gleaning from these spaces, by focusing on the language and communication devices used there.
