The Corn Exchange Newbury & New Greenham Arts are delighted to offer twelve months free rent of a studio space for a recent graduate artist.
New Greenham Arts (NGA) is the home of ten artists’ studios – one of which is being offered as an opportunity for one graduate to use and develop their work for twelve months only.
NGA, located on the former site of the nuclear missile airbase, is now a supportive environment for artists to nurture and grow their ideas. The centre is a development space to support artists working within multi-disciplinary fields with the desire to ‘merge’ the borders between visual and performance arts.
The year’s residency will be used by the ideal candidate to support them in preparing, developing and creating work for an exhibition or project which they are already involved with. This is a great opportunity for individual to develop and explore their work whilst also gaining support and inspiration from the other artists working within the venue. In return for free use of the studio we are seeking a proactive graduate artist, who is keen to explore and develop their own practice but also contribute to the evolving visual arts programming strand at the venue, supporting the centre staff with exhibition installations, running a minimum of two classes or workshops during the residency and playing an active role in the day to day life of the centre.
The studio (roughly 200sq ft) is one of ten spaces for resident artists at the centre. Collectively, these artists are known as ‘Studio 8’ and they work with a diverse range of media and methods to create work both individually and together for exhibitions, including an annual exhibition in the gallery at NGA, which the chosen candidate may also have the chance to become involved with.
If you are interested in the space, please feel free to come and visit the centre and to apply, please download an application form below. Applicants must have graduated within the last two years.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, Thursday 14 March 2013.
