The Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation/Charles Wallace India Award 2012
The Charles Wallace India Trust and Gasworks has an ongoing partnership to offer a fully funded three month residency for an artist based in India to come to the UK. This year, they will be joined by The Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation, as joint partners.
The residency comprises:
– accommodation and living expenses in London
– a private studio at Gasworks
– an artist’s talk and Open Studio, or similar public presentations, at Gasworks
– administrative, pastoral and curatorial support from Gasworks.
This residency focuses on professional development, artistic exchange and the development of artistic process. The support, networks and creative environments that Gasworks can offer will provide the artist with the means to research and experiment with new work, taking an important step in an international context.
This residency is open to emerging and mid-career artists, under the age of 40, based in India. The selected artist should be in a strong position to make an enthusiastic, discursive and speculative engagement with both the studio environments and London’s wider artistic and cultural context.
The residency is scheduled to take place during April-June 2012.
