Artists in Residence - Moving In, Moving Out, Moving On

Residences come in all sorts of guises: lasting from weeks, months to even years; offering time for research or intense periods of productivity; from private studio-based activity to public engagement – all hosted by a variety of public and commercial galleries and even non-art venues.

The afternoon-long seminar Moving In, Moving Out, Moving On will explore the proliferation of artist-in-residence models in art institutions over the last decade and their current value in the development of new and emerging practices. Chaired by artist Kelly Large, the event will question to what extent artist-in-residence structures reflect recent shifts in production from studio-centred practices to post-studio practices such as socially-engaged, performative or process-led – and how this process is curated by hosting organisations.

The Artists’ Studio at The New Art Gallery Walsall will provide the backdrop for the discussion and the following guest speakers will be further examining the complexities of revealing an artist’s process to a viewing (or engaging) public in a gallery setting: Marion Coutts (Artist), Kevin Reid (Artist), Ben Roberts (Camden Arts Centre), Matthew Walmsley (Berwick Gymnasium and Art Gallery).

Artists in Residence: Moving In, Moving Out, Moving On has been organised in partnership with The Art House, Wakefield, to celebrate the end of the Space for Ten programme; a series of ten residencies for mid-career artists hosted by ten arts organisations across the UK including The New Art Gallery Walsall, Arnolfini, Bristol and Kettles Yard, Cambridge.

The event is free but places are limited. Please book your free place in advance by calling 01922 654423 or via the following email address: joneshelen@walsall.gov.uk. If you have any access requirements, please let us know.
