ESP and The New Art Gallery Walsall (TNAGW) are delighted to offer Glasshouse, two opportunities for artists to spend time in residence in the Artists’ Studio at TNAGW. Glasshouse aims to provide artists with resources to develop new work for public presentation within a mutually supportive group context, and supports artists and arts organisations to initiate and build long-term working relationships.

In partnership with Spike Island (Bristol) and Bluecoat (Liverpool), Residency I will see one ESP member, one Spike Associate and one affiliate of Bluecoat, occupy the space from 16 May – 11 June.

Residency II will see two ESP members take up residency from 4 July – 22 August.

In both cases artists will work towards a presentation to be viewed through the studio window space at TNAGW during the month following their residency. Each artist will receive a fee of £1000.

To accommodate different working schedules, the residencies will take place over different periods of time: the first will last four weeks and the second will last seven weeks, but we expect participants on both residencies to spend 15 days on site.

The Artist’s Studio connects to the rest of the building via a large glass window, which allows visitors to see practitioners at work, offering an interesting opportunity to work in public. Building on previous Group Occupation projects, residents will work individually but collaborate as a group on the final presentation.
