Residency for Latin American artist at Gasworks, London. Deadline: Aug. 26, 2013

The Shelagh Wakely Residency

Developed in partnership with the Elephant Trust

1st January 2014 – 31st March 2014

The Shelagh Wakely Residency will enable an artist based in Latin America to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks, from January to March 2014 (11 weeks). Gasworks residencies are non-prescriptive, encouraging participating artists to focus on process, research, development of new ideas and new work. The context of Gasworks provides direct contact with London-based and international peers. The residency encourages dialogue, exchanges of ideas and experimentation within a dynamic and inspiring environment.

Applicants are required to submit a proposal, in no more than 300 words, illustrating how they might approach the residency, and what they hope to achieve (once in London the project could change but it is helpful to have an indication of an idea or a research direction in order to start conversations when artists arrive). The area/focus of the proposal is not prescribed, but the selecting panel will be looking for well-developed, context specific proposals that aim to capitalise on the resources and opportunities that Gasworks and London may be able to provide.

The selected artist will be expected to prepare for and participate in at least one talk to introduce his/her practice to an audience of arts professional, students or general public. Artists are also expected to take part in an Open Studio at the end of their residency in order to present their work or research to the public. Other activities such as one-to-one meetings and additional events are discussed individually with each artist during their residency.

Deadline for applications: 26 August 2013. The successful artist will be notified by 16 September.

The residency is fully funded and comprises:

– Accommodation and basic living expenses in London
– £1,100 materials/production budget
– International return flight and local (London transport) travel costs
– A studio at Gasworks with 24 hour access
– Per diem (£150 X 11 weeks)
– An artist’s talk and Open Studio, or similar public presentations, at Gasworks
– Administrative, pastoral and curatorial support from Gasworks (during office hours)

The Application: There is no application form. Please submit the following information electronically. We prefer digital applications in PDF, or Word formats. There is a 10MB limit on each email sent to us but you can send your files via www.yousendit.com (or similar) if necessary.

Your application should include:

– A statement outlining your research project proposal (300 word max)
– An artist’s statement describing your practice and areas of interest in your work (250 word max)
– A minimum of 10 images of recent work (preferably within a PDF portfolio) with captions and a short description if necessary. Postal applications are also accepted but please do not send originals.
– A curriculum vitae
– Any relevant documentation (e.g. articles or papers about the work or exhibitions, publications, etc.).
– A cover sheet with name, contact address, e-mail, telephone, plus confirmation that you will be available between January and March 2014 if selected.

Applications should be emailed to: Residencies Assistant, Gasworks resassist@gasworks.org.uk

If you prefer to post your application, please send it to:

Residencies Programmer
Gasworks International Residency Programme
155 Vauxhall Street
London SE11 5RH
UK

We regret that we are not able to return hard-copy materials.

Please read this before applying.

Selection and eligibility:
Applications are open to artists based in Latin America (including Mexico and Central America). The programme is open to artists working in all disciplines; however, one must note the restricted facilities of working at Gasworks. Emerging to mid-career artists involved in high quality art practice who have not had the opportunity to work in London before, are prioritised. The selected artist should be able to engage discursively and speculatively with Gasworks’ environments and London’s wider artistic and cultural context.

Selection Process:
Gasworks has established a selection committee to ensure a wide perspective and in-depth knowledge of contemporary art scene in the UK and Latin American. It includes representatives from Gasworks and Elephant Trust as well as external curators.

The decision will be announced publicly in late September 2013.
