2016 ARTIST RESIDENCIES
Following an Open Call for applications we are pleased to announce the artists who will in-residence at Wysing during 2016 are - Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Beatrice Dillon, Maryam Monalisa Gharavi, Evan Ifekoya, Wojciech Kosma, Lawrence Lek, Laura O’Neill, Florence Peake and Gary Zhexi Zhang.
The selected artists work across music, performance, performative writing, text, computer game technology, video and sound, and they bring an international perspective to Wysing's programme this year. Many of the artists have a political dimension to their work and all share a commitment to working within the structure of Wysing's programme for 2016, Wysing Poly; an alternative learning environment where diverse practices and theory come together to support the development of new work, with a focus on the practical application of ideas.
All of the artists will run Study Days as part of Wysing Poly with the first group of artists - Beatrice Dillon, Wojciech Kosma and Florence Peake - relocating their homes and studios to Wysing on 4 April 2016, for eight weeks. For further details please visit our website, here.
