Shelagh Wakely Residency (UK) for artists based in Latin America
In its fourth year, the Shelagh Wakely Residency will enable an artist based in Latin America to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks, from 2 April to 18 June 2018. Shelagh Wakely (1932 – 2011), was a British artist whose experimental practice combined visual art, sculpture and design with architecture. Wakely travelled widely in South-America, with special interest in Brazil, and her residence in London became a meeting point for Brazilian and Latin American artists. The Elephant Trust administers the Shelagh Wakely Bequest, and the Shelagh Wakely Residency was created in partnership with Gasworks to provide an emerging artist from Latin-America with a three-month residency opportunity in London. Gasworks’ residencies are opportunities for self-led professional development, artistic exchange and experimentation.
The Residency Comprises:
- 24-hour access to a fully accessible studio at Gasworks, alongside other visiting artists and Gasworks’ permanent studio holders.
- An Open Studio, or similar public presentations, at Gasworks
- Single room accommodation within Gasworks Residencies House (a 3-story house, shared with 3 other artists-in-residence)
- Basic living expenses in London (£150 p/week)
- Economy return flights from the artist’s home city to London
- Travel card (zones 1+2) for unlimited travel within central London for the duration of the residency
- Administrative, pastoral and curatorial support from Gasworks (during office hours)
Deadline: 8 January 2018
