Open Call | Artist Residency as part of Tate Exchange

nineelms_brandmark_rgb-1Deadline: 5 September, 10am

Nine Elms on the South Bank and Tate Exchange.
In partnership with Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall, Gasworks and Pump House Gallery.

We are looking for an artist or arts collective to work with us in a unique opportunity to create new work with three local art organisations and Tate Modern. The artist residency project will be the first in our three-year partnership programme for Tate Exchange at Tate Modern. Artists must be interested in socially engaged practice and committed to working with young people at all three galleries. The residency will last six months from September 2016 – March 2017, with the artist expected to produce a maximum of two project outcomes in each of the three galleries and one final shared publicly accessible outcome at Tate Exchange at Tate Modern 10th March 2017.
The fee is £6000 inclusive of vat and expenses plus a production budget of up to £5000

The Consortia will commission an artist or art collective to develop and deliver a series of innovative participatory projects that engages with 14-25 year olds to explore what it means to ‘exchange’. The artist will work closely with the partners to develop a maximum of two outcomes at each partner gallery and a final shared outcome at Tate Modern as part of the Tate Exchange Programme March 2017.
We are seeking proposals that can respond to the histories of the partners and the story of our geographical area (Battersea, Nine Elms and Vauxhall), as it undergoes a major transformation – creating new audiences and proactively engaging with the current audiences of these spaces

Artists are to submit by email a one page proposal outlining their project; this should include a rough budget, project aims and general themes.
This should be submitted to Anne Mullins Curator Arts and Culture, Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership on behalf of the Consortia at the following address: by 10am 5th September2016.

A maximum of three shortlisted artists will then be invited to develop their proposal more fully for the interview stage. Interviews will take place on 20th September at Gasworks. A small honorarium of £500 will be paid to the maximum of three shortlisted artists selected by the Shortlisting Panel to cover their studio and R&D costs. All shortlisted artists will have access to the three galleries involved in the Nine Elms Vauxhall Tate Exchange programme and the Tate Exchange floor at Tate Modern.
