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.

11th July 6-9pm. Performance by Leonor Serrano Rivas. Taking place on the canal-side patio.

To amplify and reverberate what is inside out and outward in, Leonor Serrano Rivas draws from the minimal techniques outlined by Vitruvius for amplifying sound through hollow space and azoic materials. Chisenhale Studios opens its doors this July to peal its presence, fixed along a canal thats still surface is perfect for sending messages down the lock and beyond. How to listen to aesthetic codes speak and ornament sing, is the focus of Serrano Rivas’ installation and performance. Voices will move around the building calling over water, metal and brick, to test her sculptural additions as means for amplifying the secrets that lay within. Image: Leonor Serrano Rivas, research material.

12-16 July. Living In Chronic Times – Curated by Samantha Lippett.

‘Living In Chronic Times’ responds to “a contemporary ‘war’ on death”. Through a comprehensive investigation with an interdisciplinary survey of arts and health practitioners, Lippett aims to question the cause and affect of a chronically ‘death anxious’ population. She will highlight the paradoxical relationship between false understandings of mortality as a ‘curable’ human condition, particularly at a time of acute funding cuts to the NHS resulting in longer waiting times, dehumanised ‘care’ and an uncanny ‘acceptance’ of unethical or undignified endings. A multilayered project, ‘Living In Chronic Times’ will investigate such false understandings in relation to the recent phenomena of digital legacy and death services that Lippett suggests manipulate contemporary death anxiety in order to profit from our growing web-based labour before, and after, we die.

Tuesday 12th July. Chronic Time / Ethics of Care: 2pm – Three talks and a curator-led panel discussion. Sarah Lippett, ‘Time, Storytelling, Illness and Death’; Martin O’Brien, ’Performing The Chronic Body’; Lisa Baraitser and Laura Salisbury, ‘Waiting Times: Waiting and Care in the Time of Modernity’. 7pm – Screening of artist Martin O’Brien’s durational performance and Q&A.Living In Chronic Times, Final

Wednesday 13th July. Digital Ethics:

Friday 15th July. Dawn of The (Digital) Dead:
11am – ’Digital Legacy Writing Workshop’ led by Samantha Lippett. 7pm – Rachel McRae, ‘Level 350’, Performance and Q&A.

Saturday 16th July. Endings / Breaking The Taboo:

SET – Curated by Sol Polo.

Sunday 24th July, 7-9pm. Entry is free but capacity is very limited so we encourage to book early to secure your place.

SET is happy to host its first SET event in London this summer: a light installation by the Barcelona based artists and designers Clara Romaní and Octavi Serra stemming from their project FOS. The installation will respond to a dialogue with a surprise London based band and will be presented as part of their performance at Chisenhale Studios’ terrace.

SET is an experimental platform for emerging artists, musicians and filmmakers founded in Barcelona by a musician, a filmmaker and a curator. Every SET event is an installation / performance that results from a dialogue between a visual artist and a musician or a band.

Calling all emerging artists

ITW image copy

We are currently inviting applications for Into the Wild 2015/2016

Into the Wild is a one-year professional development programme led by members of Chisenhale Studios. Now in its second year, this unique, free course aims to support and inspire emerging artists by providing practical advice on how to survive and thrive in the real world, as well as offering opportunities for making and creative development.

With talks, workshops and mentoring from successful artists and key industry professionals, participants will be able to explore their practices and better understand the diversity of ways to succeed and flourish as an artist in London.

How to: get funding, network, promote yourself, write applications, work with galleries and curators, write statements, build audiences, work collectively, earn money, stay confident, find spaces, generate opportunities and be proactive.

The programme begins with an eight-week taught course that runs every Monday 11am – 5pm from 26th October until 14th December 2015. Each day will include inspiring and informative talks by invited guest speakers and artists from Chisenhale Studios. Participants will also be matched with a relevant studio artist for individual one-to-one mentoring. The taught course will be followed by a group-residency in Chisenhale’s large ‘Studio 4’ space throughout March-May 2016 (time commitments during the residency are flexible but we expect thorough involvement). The aim of this part of the programme is to consolidate knowledge gained in the Monday sessions, by giving participants the chance to make work, share ideas and host events. During this time, two emerging curators will work with participants to plan shows and projects beyond the programme, by means of transition ‘into the wild’.

Chisenhale Art Place occupies a unique position in London’s East End art community, providing a distinctive platform for local and international artists and audiences. Founded in 1980 by artists determined to find their own premises, Chisenhale Art Place now houses three flourishing and distinct initiatives: Chisenhale Dance Space, Chisenhale Gallery and Chisenhale Studios. The studios provide affordable workspace to both established and emerging artists. Their work reflects the diversity of contemporary art practice and promotes a wider understanding of artistic practice and processes through open sharing events, projects and residencies.

The fourteen artists selected for Into the Wild will be required to participate fully, and must commit to attending all of the Monday sessions for eight weeks starting 26th October 2015.

There is no fee required to take part in Into the Wild. Participants will instead be asked to present a collaborative document of their learning, which can be shared and distributed to other artists and future participants.

Into the Wild is supported by Arts Council England and the artists at Chisenhale Studios.

Further Information

Two bursaries are available to help cover travel costs for selected artists from outside of London. Please state on your application if you would like to be considered for this.

Dates: Every Monday from 26th October through 14th December 2015. 11am-5pm. Plus participation in the shared residency that runs March through May 2016 (you are not expected to be there full time during the full three months).

Location: Chisenhale Studios at Chisenhale Art Place, 64-84 Chisenhale Rd, London E3 5QZ

Who can apply?

Artists based in England who have completed BA degree courses in the last three years, who are ambitious about developing their art careers and have not yet undertaken MA study. We will also consider artists who have undertaken an equivalent level of training/education and are at the same stage in their careers. Participants must demonstrate commitment to involvement in the full programme.

Studio4 Residencies: Summer and Winter 2015

Studio4 Residencies: Summer and Winter 2015

We are inviting proposals for the next two Studio4 Residencies at Chisenhale Studios. The first will run from July through September 2015.  The second will run from November 2015 through January 2016.

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. They are available in three month blocks, and are interspersed throughout the year with research and events undertaken by the visual artists in our other 39 studios.  The aim of each residency is to provide opportunity for one 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 artists undertaking each residency are 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 a few small public events, workshops, studio conversations or events. 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 two residency periods: Summer 1st July 2015 through to 30th September 2015 and Winter 1st November 2015 through 31st January 2016.  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 preference for Summer or Winter (brrr, keep in mind there is no central heating!).

Please note that due to the nature of the project space, and its first floor location in the building (there is no lift), studio events should be suitable for small audiences of up to 30 people. It is not a gallery, so not suitable for open exhibition.  We do however, have a more accessible ground floor education room which could also be made available for public activities.

Do see other postings below on this website for previous residencies and events taking place in our project space

Applications are due by 12 noon 3rd June 2015. Interviews for short-listed applicants will be held as soon as possible after that date, likely the 10th June for the first residency.

Submission will only be accepted in the following format:

  1. Proposal of project idea, including detail of information requested above.  One or two A4 pages, minimum font size 11.
  2. Current CV.  No more than two A4 pages giving current and relevant experience.
  3. 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.

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.

Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award 2015

Unfunction Function 2011

Hannah Honeywill is the recipient of the Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award 2015/16.

The award commemorates the life of Pete Lloyd Lewis, who occupied Chisenhale’s Studio 3 until his death from cancer, in 2013. A critical and enquiring artist and teacher, Pete was instrumental to the growth and development of Chisenhale Art Place, of which he was a founder member. The award is generously supported by Pete’s partner, Ted Sumner.

Hannah Honeywill’s practice investigates how ideas of ‘aporia’ and the nature of ‘the bend’ symbiotically combine to widen a queer understanding of the art object. She completed her MA in Fine Art in 2013 at the School of Art at Birmingham City University, where Lloyd Lewis taught for many years.

Honeywill will use the  award to make, experiment and refine her artwork whilst also being able to work on multiple projects. At just over 500 sq feet in size, Studio 3 will enable her to also construct large-scale pieces requiring longer processes. Having only recently returned to London, Honeywill said: “This studio award presents an unbelievable opportunity to be part of a dynamic studio environment and to build and refresh professional networks in the city.”

As part of that, Honeywill intends to stage four public artist talks at Chisenhale, selecting artists from Birmingham’s emerging queer art scene as participants.  This, she feels, “will create opportunity for cross-city dialogues and a place to meet with artists with similar research interests to build discourse and extend networks.”

The Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award provides a studio rent-free for one year, beginning 1st May.  The previous winner was Athena Papadopoulos.
