Extreme Views Artist-in-Residence

Website: http://www.art-gene.co.uk/news/extreme-views-artists-residency-call-out-2018/

Art Gene are pleased to offer a great opportunity for experienced and enthusiastic visual artists for the Extreme Views Project 2018. The successful applicant will have an understanding of working with communities and socially engaged arts with a practice that spans exhibiting and project work in the environment. The Extreme Views artist-in-residence is an opportunity for an artist or collective to work in residence from the studios at Art Gene, in Barrow-in-Furness. The artist is to collaborate with the Art Gene team, to plan and deliver a series of lectures as part of the ‘think tank’ and ‘tower’ events. The series of immersive and participatory lectures and activities will facilitate understanding of what is required for the outcomes of the project. The ‘tower’ public event is to draw out the special nature of the place, understand the barriers and develop a clearer view of what is needed to help facilitate further and new use and enjoyment of the place, engaging communities with that process. Work produced as part of the tower and/or from personal reflection during the residency can be shown in the Extreme Views exhibition in the Art Gene Gallery in Barrow and partner Gallery Boone’s Chapel exhibition in London as well as online on the Art Gene website in 2019. This work will be promoted and managed by the Artist Founders and Project Manager in collaboration with the artist. The total artist fee for this residency is £4500 which will cover materials, accommodation & travel costs.
