Description of Residency
The Morphallaxis series of 6 week long artist residencies has been devised as a means to progress ideas inaugurated in previous projects, both those related to the artist’s personal practice, and those which have emerged through the ArtFunkl programme.
The main focus of this residency programme is to explore the use of the ArtFunkl concept, both as a venue for producing and exhibiting work, and as a source for generating projects elsewhere in the city of Manchester and its vicinity.
Previous artists in residence have employed specific attitudes towards the cultural, historical and creative structures of Manchester, and used these as generating factors. This has resulted in work which has a resonance to the surroundings, and connects with the practices of other artists in the area. ArtFunkl‘s aim with the Morphallaxis programme is to uncover, re-invent, and re-imagine artistic practice, relevant to the contemporary debate regarding Visual Art in the Manchester context.
Have space and time to work on your own project.
Show your work during the final week of the residency
Be involved in devising and constructing the exhibition space for your show
Be actively involved in making contacts and promoting the exhibition.
Have the opportunity to host gatherings or social events at the venue.
Room 1: £375 (per 4 week period)
