Liz Corkery: UK Residency Summer 2016
Liz Corkery – AS220 Gallery Assistant, Printshop member, and founder of Print Club Boston has been accepted into the London Summer Intensive!
Run by The Slade, UCL, and Camden Art Centre for the month of August, the London Summer Intensive focuses on, and I quote:
“independent studio practice, supported by artist facilitator Jefford Horrigan and an exciting series of visiting artists. It will reflect the dynamic, rigorous and open-ended approaches to art-making championed by both institutions and provide a stimulating and flexible environment for 21 artists from all over the world to experiment and make new work. Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum and the galleries of Soho and the West End.
The programme will include artist talks, evening lectures, studio discussion – in groups and one to one – social events, a day trip to the Whitstable Biennale and curatorial and professional development. Central to the programme is a focus on working as an artist in London, a city which offers opportunities to investigate multidisciplinary practice and to visit public arts institutions, commercial galleries and artist-run spaces.
The London Summer Intensive concludes with a critique and showcase of ideas and work in progress at Camden Arts Centre’s Artists’ Studio. Participating artists will work with each other and with curators at Camden Arts Centre to inhabit the shared space.”
Liz has also received funding to spend July in the UK conducting research around “sham ruins” and picturesque English garden estates (Stourhead, Blenheim Palace, Castle Howard, etc.).
