Description of Residency
The Metamorphosis series of residencies is conceived of as a regenerative development following on from the success of the Morphallaxis residency programmes at ArtFunkl. It is aimed at artists who are enthusiastic about working within the Manchester environment, and who are energetic about making connections in this context.
The Metamorphosis residency is an opportunity for artists to confront new ideas, or experiment with their work, unrestricted by any formal or commercial considerations, over a 4 or 6 week duration. It is a period of exploration, without any pressure, with a completely open brief for how the work should be shown at the end of the residency.
Manchester has a very active art world, as well as an active cultural life in other creative fields, such as music/entertainment. Artists taking part in the ArtFunkl residencies can tap into the energy and dynamic of the environment around them, and use it to bring a fresh creative pulse to the next phase of their practice. Added to this there are many opportunities for initiating dialogues with locally based artists.
Have space and time to work on your own project.
Show your work during the final week of the residency in an event to be formulated during the residency
Be involved in devising and constructing the exhibition space for showing your work
Be actively involved in making contacts and promoting the work.
Have the opportunity to start dialogues with locally based artists and curators
