Mini-residencies

This spring, the CPVA is launching a new initiative that aims to allow artists to develop their practices with the help of access to academia. These mini-residencies will be small-scale, with artists being invited to join lectures, seminars, or meetings that have specific relevance to a project or a body of work. The mini-residency programme will be ongoing, on an ad-hoc basis, and will – for now – be granted by invitation only.

The first artists to be invited to a mini-residency are Melissa Franklin and Cheryl Simmons. They will be welcomed to King’s later this spring, and will take part in a joint presentation with our other artists in residence towards the end of 2017.

After attending a lecture series during the coming term, Reeve will share a residency at Kunsthuis SYB later this year with fellow artist in residence Siobhán Tattan.

After attending the lecture series, Tattan will share a residency at Kunsthuis SYB later this year with fellow artist in residence Hester Reeve.
