SYMPOSIUM: Monday 23rd June 2014: Mapping Art Practice in the UK
Mapping Art Practice in the UK is a research project that has evolved out of Standpoint Futures Residencies, a practice based residency programme designed to support professional practice and career development. Taking place at Standpoint Gallery and Studios in Hoxton, London, the residency is specifically for artists based outside of the city and designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. Key figures in the London and international art world, such as TJ Demos, Jan Verwoert, Lucy Reynolds and Sacha Craddock, are introduced to visiting artists within the context of the studio. Upon the culmination of a residency, each artist is invited to organise a public event in conjunction with their research, manifesting as an group discussion or small-scale exhibition within the gallery or studio space at Standpoint.
Partners with whom we have run the programme and selected artists include g39, Cardiff; The Royal Standard, Liverpool; Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen; Exeter Phoenix, Exeter and CHAPTER, Cardiff, ARC (now Aspex Artists) Portsmouth; Workplace Gallery, Gateshead; Grand Union, Birmingham; OUTPOST, Norwich; Castlefield Gallery, Manchester and Spike Island, Bristol.
