Holding Space

Website: http://www.theshowroom.org/events/holding-space-open-call

Holding Space is a one-year programme of research and support for eight UK based artists.  The group will meet for a series of seminars in London and visit cultural organisations across the UK and Europe. The group will collaborate on research, production and programming for an exhibition that will be held at The Showroom in 2018.  All travel, accommodation, meals, research and commissioning fees will be covered. Artists will be expected to make a commitment of up to 3 days per month (including attendance of workshops, site visits and one-to-one sessions).  Holding Space is a part of a wider programme titled Object Positions, which aims to explore how contemporary cultural structures and culture in the UK have been cultivated from administrative colonial processes.
