Artists given Whiteleys space
Whiteleys, in Bayswater, has given work and exhibition space to four artists on the third floor of the building ahead of next year’s proposed redevelopment of the iconic 1863 building.
For up to three months, each resident is being helped with curation and encouraged to take part in in-house “criticism sessions” with other emerging artists.
Alexander James, 23, above, an illustration graduate from Camberwell School of Arts, will see his moving image exhibition A Kid Who Walked The Plank run from Friday to Sunday this week. The residency is set up through Working Project, which will offer similar opportunities in west London location next year.
Working Project director Cara Mills said: “The aim of our residency is to encourage emerging artists to expand and experiment within their practice. We are proud to offer space to artists in one of west London’s most iconic buildings.”
