Slade School and Camden Arts Centre Residency

I am thrilled to have been selected as one of 21 artists for the 2018 London Summer Intensive.

The London Summer Intensive is a four-week residency for artists offered by the Slade School of Fine ArtUCL and Camden Arts Centre. The Slade is a dynamic, world-renowned international art school and Camden Arts Centre is an influential space for contemporary art exhibitions and education.

The residency will run throughout August 2018 and will focus on independent studio practice, providing a stimulating and flexible environment for 21 artists from all over the world to experiment and make new work. Supported by artist facilitator Jefford Horrigan and visiting artists, it will reflect the lively, rigorous and open-ended approaches to art-making championed by both institutions. Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum and the galleries of Soho and the West End.

Previous residencies have brought together artists from over 20 different countries providing diverse and exciting working environments. Visiting artists and curators from past programmes have included Faisal Abdu’Allah, Caroline Achaintre, Sacha Craddock, Simon Faithful, Mark Godfrey, Dryden Goodwin, Anne Hardy, Evan Ifekoya, Chantal Joffe, Paul Johnson, Sally O’Reilly, Harold Offeh, and Phoebe Unwin.
