| About the project |
|[ H E T E R O T O P I A S ] |01/01 - 01/08 | 2020 Five West Midlands based artists have been chosen for a paid residency to produce a solo show in response to community engagement and research of ‘Heterotopia’s’. Each artist will undertake a one month residency in our gallery and studio spaces, where the research will inform an artistic outcome in the form of a solo exhibition at the end of the month. The process, research and outcomes will be presented as an academic publication – in collaboration with writer in residence Nataniel Grant - that encapsulates all five artist’s journey investigating the spaces and engaging in community discourse regarding the historical, cultural and political context of the spaces in the city.
Each artist will engage with a local space and its frequent inhabitants or lack thereof. These heterotopias or non-spaces will inform the research and the output of the final works. This can take shape in any form the artist wishes, through artistic interpretation in any medium, discussion groups, interviews, workshops or documentation etc.
Seven other artists have been invited to contribute to the publication and a final group show at Wolverhampton Art Gallery to present a narrative between 'the in-between' and what that means in our current climate.
