Henna Nadeem, Practising, 2010
The South London Gallery’s programme of artist residencies launched in 2010 thanks to the completion of its building project, including the Outset Artists' Flat. The flat, designed by 6a architects and originally located on the top floor of the SLG’s Matsudaira Wing, has now moved to a larger space in the neighbouring building at 69 Peckham Road. The flat provides pleasant and inspiring accommodation for a programme of annual residencies.
Each year the SLG hosts two or three residencies in the Outset Artists’ Flat, interspersed with shorter projects with artists and curators.
The biennial Outset Residency is offered to an international artist commissioned to make new work as part of the SLG’s exhibition programme
The Nina Stewart Artist Residency is offered to a recent graduate from a UK art school. The six-month residency, with studio provision, culminates in an exhibition in the galleries on the first floor of the Matsudaira Wing and the opportunity to produce a publication.
The third annual residency focuses on the SLG’s work with different sectors of the local community and involves partnerships with other organisations.
The Nina Stewart Artist Residency with the South London Gallery is funded by The Nina and Roger Stewart Charitable Trust.
The Outset Residency is funded by Outset.
