The London Summer Intensive is a four-week residency programme for artists offered by two leading art institutions, the Slade School of Fine Art and Camden Arts Centre. The Slade is a vibrant, world-renowned international art school and Camden Arts Centre is an influential space for contemporary art exhibitions and education.
Throughout August 2015, this four-week programme will focus on independent studio practice supported by an artist facilitator and an exciting series of visiting artists. Led by key figures from the London art scene, Camden Arts Centre and the Slade, the London Summer Intensive will reflect the dynamic, rigorous and open-ended approaches to art-making championed by both institutions. It will provide a stimulating and flexible environment for a small group of artists from all over the world to experiment and make new work.
The London Summer Intensive will include artist talks, evening lectures, studio tutorials and the opportunity to take part in a number of social occasions and professional development events. Central to the programme is a focus on working as an artist in London amongst an ecosystem full of public arts institutions, commercial galleries, artist-run spaces and studios. On weekends there will be trips to visit major galleries around the city as well as a day trip to the South East of England.
Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in Bloomsbury—a part of London historically associated with academics, bohemians and progressive thinkers, close to the British Museum and the galleries of Soho and the West End.
The London Summer Intensive culminates in a showcase of work and ideas at Camden Arts Centre with a closing critique and celebration.
The application process is open now. Successful applicants will be working at postgraduate level (or with equivalent experience working as a practicing artist) with a portfolio of artwork that demonstrates a stage in their artistic development that would allow them to benefit from intensive independent research. Those who apply by 23 November will receive a 10% reduction in fees; the registration process will remain open until February 2015.
