guildhall artist in residence

London-based artists are invited to apply to become the first Artist in Residence for Guildhall, the seat of the City of London’s government.

The three-month residency from 2 September to 29 November focuses on ‘Celebrating City Women’ and is aimed at mid-career artists with ‘outstanding’ portfolios that predominantly feature 2D work (e.g. drawing, painting, textiles, works on canvas and paper), and who can demonstrate a keen interest in the City’s history and culture.

The successful artist will be awarded £10,000, which covers the fee, materials, travel costs, and other related expenses, as well as free use of a well-lit studio space next to the City of London Corporation-owned Guildhall Art Gallery.

The resulting artwork is expected to be displayed at the gallery and will be acquired for the City Corporation’s extensive art collection, which includes works by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Marianne Stokes, Elizabeth Stanhope-Forbes, and John Constable.
