Guildhall Artist in Residence

Website: https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/visit-the-city/attractions/guildhall-galleries/Pages/artist-in-residence.aspx

London-based fine artists are invited to apply to become the first Artist in Residence for Guildhall, the seat of the City of London’s government. The three-month residency focuses on ‘Celebrating City Women’ and is aimed at mid-career artists with ‘outstanding’ portfolios that predominantly feature 2D work (e.g. drawing, painting, textiles, works on canvas and paper), and who can demonstrate a keen interest in the City’s history and culture. The successful artist will be awarded £10,000, which covers the fee, materials, travel costs, and other related expenses, as well as free use of a well-lit studio space next to the City of London Corporation-owned Guildhall Art Gallery. The resulting artwork is expected to be displayed at the gallery and will be acquired for the City Corporation’s extensive art collection. Artists applying must be based in the UK, and due to the specificity of the residency, preferably based in London
