Basic living expenses in London.
Economy return flights from the artist’s home city to London.
Travel card (zones 1+2) for unlimited travel within central London for the duration of the residency.
Administrative, pastoral and curatorial support from Gasworks (during office hours).
The residency is open to contemporary visual artists working in all disciplines, though one must note Gasworks’ restricted facilities. Aspiring artists producing high quality work who have not had the opportunity to work in London before will be prioritized. It is important that all applicants research Gasworks thoroughly before submitting their application so as to be fully aware of the context which they would, if successful, be entering.
The selected artist should be able to engage discursively and speculatively with Gasworks’ environment and London’s wider artistic and cultural context. With this in mind, applicants should submit a project proposal within their application, outlining their specific research interests and intentions for the residency. Those who fail to submit a considered proposal that is specific to this residency and the London context will be disqualified. Artists who previously applied for the 2019 residency are encouraged to reapply.

The artist will be selected on the basis of their application. Gasworks will establish a selection panel to ensure a wide perspective on and in-depth knowledge of the contemporary art scene in the UK and New Zealand. It will include representatives from Gasworks, The Jan Warburton Charitable Trust, Elam School of Fine Arts, the University of Auckland and other main organizers. The successful artist only will be notified by Friday 24 April 2020.
