The New Art Gallery Walsall is inviting applications from artists who wish to develop new work in response to the theme: ‘The Building as Material’. The residency provides scope for the selected artist to respond to the raw materials and interior of the Caruso St John designed building: concrete, leather, Douglas fir, walnut, and stainless steel. Artists may also consider the physical presence of the gallery architecture within the town or the concept of the building as a house for art.
The residency will run from 16 August to 13 November 2016 and the selected artist will work from the gallery's purpose-built Artists’ Studio. Full information on the residency can be found here. Deadline: 9am, Tuesday 12 July 2016.
