Interested in movement practices aligned with the non-dance of Jerome Bel and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Darren Nixon looks at how painting bumps up against people and interacts with the screen and with performance.
By creating sets of painted objects whose explicit purpose is to address the camera, he looks at ways in which the mediated experience of the artwork can offer something different – but not less rich – than direct experience of the installation.
The video works, presented on screens and projected alongside and inside the installation, will be the first, experimental presentation of this complex set of possibilities.
Event Location: Studio 4, Chisenhale Studios, 64-84 Chisenhale Rd, London E3 5QZ . Please buzz the office for entry or call 020 8981 1916. Nearest tube: Mile End/ Bethnal Green.

Join our Studio Artist Kevin Harrison for a new course in Sculpture starting on the 11th of January, all materials will be provided. we will be working with clay, wood, plaster, wire, card and paper!
For booking and information contact Kevin
For six weeks starting 23rd January (last day is 27th February)
Cost is £60, payable in advance to secure a place.
This is a beginners ceramic course that will explain the basic techniques of hand building, glazing and decorating clay. It is a hands on experience and participants will make at least one finished piece to take home.
During the first three weeks the course will focus on understanding how to build and decorate with clay using different methods: carving, coiling, pinching, press molding and slab building. Alongside these practical exercises participants will also learn the basic theory behind the alchemic process of glazing and firing the clay in the kiln. The last three weeks will focus on planning, designing and developing your personal project by applying what you have learned. The piece will be glazed, fired and taken home.
The course will be taught by Paulina Michnowska, an artist who creates visual allegories in clay. These are often humorous, rooted in autobiographical anecdotes, historical folklore and the dullness of mundanity.
Please book directly with Paulina. Payment must be made before places can be confirmed.
Start the year with an art course at Chisenhale Studios. Kate Hardy will be offering her expertise in how to develop your painting skills.

We are inviting proposals for Studio4 Residencies at Chisenhale Studios. Residencies will take place between March and September 2018, ranging between one and three months depending on your project needs.
The residencies provide free use of the Studio4 Project Space to artists seeking a short-term studio to develop an idea or execute a project. The aim of each residency is to provide opportunity for a 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, the artist undertaking each residency is expected to engage a wider artistic network as well as people who live and work in our local area, involving them in the artistic process through the development of the work itself or a few small public events, showings, workshops, studio conversations etc. Ideally, smaller open-door sessions could also happen during the residency, as an opportunity to engage with other Chisenhale members.
To apply, please write to tell us about the project or idea you’d like to work on, why you need this free short-term studio to realise it and how you will engage people outside of Chisenhale Art Place during the residency. It would be helpful to include what benefit you think will be gained by those audiences and the impact it will have on your practice. Please state your anticipated duration in the studio and any time preference over the summer.
Please note that Studio4 is on the first floor and the building unfortunately has no lift. Studio events should be suitable for small audiences of up to 50 people. We also have a more accessible ground floor education room which could also be made available for public activities.
Applications are due by 10am 15th January 2018. Interviews for short-listed applicants will be held on the morning of Wednesday24th January.
Submission will only be accepted in the following format:
- Proposal of project idea, including detail of information requested above. One or two A4 pages, minimum font size 11.
- Current CV. No more than two A4 pages giving current and relevant experience.
- Supporting images. Text and images from previous projects or illustrating your proposal. No more than three A4 pages, with images saved at a low resolution. Your website address could be added for additional info, but we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to look at it.
Please combine all the above into one pdf file, clearly marked your name.
We will not accept submissions that exceed 7 pages and 5MB file size.
Submissions and queries to email@example.com

Our Standpoint Futures resident Beth Emily Richards has moved into Studio4 for six weeks of mentoring and making.
Beth is an artist and researcher based in Plymouth. Her work investigates contemporary mythmaking, often exploring popular culture and its associated idiosyncratic subcultures. Frequently the work seeks to complicate macho narratives by re-performing them in ways that use absurdism and failure to undermine dominant histories.
Past works have engaged with personae such as Harry Houdini, Robert Falcon Scott, Francis Drake, Arnold Schwarzenegger and William ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody; as well as with social trends such as ‘tombstoning’ (teenagers jumping off cliffs into the sea), Mexican telenovelas, ‘80s-‘90s action films, roller derby girls, Western movies, scouting, and motivational speaking.
Working with others is central to Beth’s practice, which frequently involves collaborating with location-based or interest-based communities. During her time at Standpoint Futures she will be consolidating and expanding upon a group of occult enthusiasts and experts with whom she has been attending workshops responding to the life and work of Ithell Colquhoun, a surrealist artist, writer and occultist who worked in Cornwall in the mid-twentieth century.
Beth’s new body of work not only responds to Colquhoun’s creative output and divinatory practices, but to the experience of working with a diverse group of artists, writers and magical practitioners, and forming a temporary community with them.

Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid-career artists, based outside Greater London. They 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 promote the exchange of ideas between London and the wider UK art world.
Standpoint Futures is run in partnership and hosted with Chisenhale Studios with support from Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales and the Fenton Arts Trust. http://www.standpointlondon.co.uk/residencies
Chisenhale Studios is pleased to announce the 14 artists selected for Into the Wild 2018:
Ayo Akingbade (LCC), Marc Blazel (Brighton), Jamie Bradley (Chelsea), Noa Carvajal (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), Jodie Chinn (Goldsmiths), Verity Coward (Goldsmiths), Annabel Duggleby (Wimbledon), George Hill-Baker (Wimbledon), Megan Jenkins (Glasgow), Yoojin Lee (Gerrit Rietveld Academie), Lawrence Pardoe (Slade), Adam Paroussos (Central St Martins), Elinor Stanley (Glasgow), Ted Targett (Wimbledon).
The group were selected by a panel of judges including artists Richard Layzell, Sarah Kate Wilson and Louise Ashcroft (ITW Programme Leader), and our Arts Manager Andrea Davidson.
The programme kicks off in early December with a 2-day intensive during which participants will get to know one another’s practices and collectively influence the design of the 10-week taught course which commences in January.
Later in the year the group will carry out individual research projects in association with external organisations, host events and an exhibition, and take part in a mentoring programme led by emerging curators Nora-Swantje Almes and Andrew Price who are currently on the Goldsmiths MFA in Curating.
Now in its fourth year, this ambitious programme develops artists’ practices and careers during the challenging period after undergraduate study.
The programme is funded by Arts Council England and Chisenhale Art Place.
Chisenhale Studio Artists are delighted to be running Window Shopping over the upcoming Open Weekend. Window Shopping is an initiative to raise crucial funds to repair some of the windows in the Studios. Over 40 artists have kindly donated window-pane-sized works on paper which will be displayed and on sale for £100 each. It’s a fantastic opportunity to buy the work of established artists with international reputations, as well as up-and-coming artists such as those taking part in our residency and Into The Wild programmes. All the funds raised will go towards the windows.
Starting early October, we will start uploading images of the artwork here on this page and on Instagram (@ChisenhaleStudios). Although all the artwork will be available to view digitally in advance, each piece can only be bought in person during the weekend opening hours. We recommend you arrive early if you have your eye on a specific artwork, as once it’s bought it’s gone! Due to demand, there will be a limit of one artwork per transaction between 6-7pm on 20th October. Customers are welcome to purchase more than one over the opening hours, but for the first hour you’ll have to get back in the queue if there is one.
Here are images of artwork received already, with more to come. Be sure to check out Instagram for names of artists and details of work. If you are not on social media and would like any details, do email or call us.
AND HERE IS THE LIST OF WORKS
There are few works that have arrived today that are not on the list of works. Those artists are Joey Ryken and Nicholas Cheveldave. Works arriving yesterday are also not uploaded here but are on the List of Works.
