David Dale Gallery are excited to launch a new studio residency for two artists in the gallery for three months from November 2021.
The gallery is returning to the format of artist residencies after a hiatus of eight years, having originally been centred around residencies. David Dale Gallery are currently exploring new ways in which we can further support artist development, providing space for research, development and experimentation outside of our exhibitions and events programmes.
The two artist residencies are to take place simultaneously, each in half of our gallery space, for a duration of three months. The residencies are intended as production and research residencies, and as such there will be no expected outcomes. The artists will have the opportunity to feed into the events programme, if they wish, and will be invited to participate within an open studio day/ event. The intention of having two artists is to create space for exchange, learning and community between the artists as well as our wider studio artist community.
The artists will be selected from an open call, which will be limited to artists based in Scotland, but have no other criteria. The selection will be completed by the organisation plus invited guest selectors, Louise Briggs and Hardeep Pandhal, and will select artists on the basis of how useful this opportunity will be at the current stage of their practice.
This open call has now closed.
