Event description

Description

This symposium considers the context for the recent increase in artist-in-residence schemes across the globe and examines the different models.

Principally artists’ residencies provide dedicated time and space for creative work. A residency can provide artists of all disciplines with many different styles and models of support; they can take place in all sorts of locations from the urban to the rural, for a single artist to many. Some residencies require the artist to participate in programming or to donate artwork; some residencies are free, but many other residency programs must charge fees. Some artists make a career out of participating in artist residency programs; some organisations will pay an artist to create work. Participants may be visual artists, writers, composers, choreographers, scholars or other creative individuals. Some residencies can be a programme for active engagement with the public while others can focus on solitude and retreat. Many provide accommodation and studio space as a home-away-from-home; this is especially the case for Hauser & Wirth Somerset - a community for artists in which to work and be supported in the creation of new art.

Hauser & Wirth Somerset has invited key speakers to represent the initiator and the reciprocator in order to hear their experiences of artist-in-residence programmes.
