Three West Midlands based artists selected for The Stay at Home Residency series during lockdown
The New Art Gallery Walsall has adapted its Studio residency programme in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic to support three artists to produce work from their homes between May and July this year. Following an open-call to artists based in the West Midlands, the Gallery received 60 varied proposals from a diverse range of artists working across the region. The many challenges that artists are facing during lockdown were well articulated. In selecting, we were keen to see opportunities for artistic and professional development during these challenging times, to support creative approaches to practice amid imposed restrictions and to explore the benefits and possibilities of sharing with an online audience.
The New Art Gallery Walsall is adapting its studio programme in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic to offer a series of stay at home residency opportunities for artists based in the West Midlands. Between May and July 2020, three artists will receive support to develop work from the safety of their home. See Submitting a Residency Proposalfor full details. Application deadline: Friday 24th April, 10am
