Oliver Tirré and Gareth Proskourine-Barnett have been selected for the Common Ground Residency at the New Art Gallery Walsall. They will be resident in the Artists’ Studio from 4 June – 14 July 2019, leading to a post residency presentation of work in progress from 16 July–25 August 2019.
Common Ground aims to catalyse new relationships between artists and organisations in the East and West Midlands.
The residency coincides with TNAGW’s year-long celebration of sculpture in all its forms, marking the 60th anniversary of Sir Jacob Epstein’s death.
TNAGW and Eastside Projects have worked in partnership since 2012 to offer residency opportunities that create space for artists to work together, make new work and develop new networks, with previous residencies connecting practitioners based in the West Midlands, Bristol, Liverpool and Cardiff. Common Ground is part of a new strand of activity initiated by Eastside Projects and Primary which aims to strengthen networks across the East and West Midlands.
