The Koppel Project Hive run their residency programme every summer, inviting artists to come and work in the gallery to take advantage of a larger space and different environment.
Resident Artists have the opportunity to work in a new environment within the gallery space as a conducive to creativity, inspiration and cross-pollination.
The aim of this program is to reinforce the bridge between The Hive artist community and the local area.
Resident Artists can transform their designated spaces to either create new artworks or work on their on-going projects. No tangible outcome is expected, but all are required to self-document their art making progress and use this space and time to contemplate, research, and experiment with their practice.
FACILITIES AND MEDIA:
The ground floor of the gallery is exposed to the street level of Holborn Viaduct, while the lower ground floor offers a vast, functional space for large-scale works.
This residency brings a public audience into the creative process through informal conversations that provide context to the Resident Artists’ work.
Over the course of the residency, the gallery supplies access to materials and tools as well as advice and guidance throughout their creative process.
Artists can work across a wide range of media, from painting and sculpture to sound, video and performance: truly reflecting the transdisciplinary attitude and explorations undertaken by The Hive.
