Archway Investigations and Responses - Fellowships

AIR (Archway Investigations and Responses) is a project studio at Byam Shaw School of Art. AIR introduces artists to Archway – into the conversations, situations and institutions of an ordinary places - and encourages them to explore and test ideas without a definite outcome in mind.

Applications are invited from artists with an interest in responding to the visible, and invisible, qualities and predicaments of Archway and Kings Cross. There are opportunities for hosting relationships with local institutions and businesses, and for developing site-responsive projects. Three artist fellowships are available from October 2011-June 2012.

The selected artists will be provided with shared studio space at Byam Shaw in Archway and receive a bursary of £4,000. It is intended that the fellowships make available sufficient financial support, space and time to encourage an intensive period of working. It is also expected that the fellows will have a recognisable creative presence within the college and in particular will contribute to the new postgraduate programme.

Previous artist fellows include Alex Baker, Michael McMillan, Mel Brimfield, Marcia Farquhar, Edwina Ashton, Kit Poulson, Aaron Williamson, Judy Price, Mary George, Richard Couzins, Janette Parris, Laurence Kavanagh, Ruth Ewan, Ruth Maclennan, Emily Wolfe, Tim Renshaw, Jemima and Dolly Brown, Löthar Götz, Andrew Cross, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Ryan Gander, Matthew Tickle, Clare Goodwin, Stella Capes, Eva Weinmayer, Luke Caulfield, Sarah Chilvers, Anna Barham and Till Exit.

Applicants must demonstrate a minimum period of three years working independently of university or art school. Please send a CV, a brief statement, a maximum of ten hard copy images, the names and addresses of two referees and a SAE, with an optional CD/DVD of recent works, to Anna Hart, AIR, Byam Shaw at Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design, University of the Arts London, 2 Elthorne Road, London, N19 4AG.

The deadline for applications is Mon 27 Jun 2011, and interviews will take place on Thu 14 Jul 2011.
