Artist in Residence

Two Temple Place & Thorp Stavri Open Call

Updated: 28 June 2022

Applications are now open for a new research residency programme developed in a new collaboration between Two Temple Place and curators Eric Thorp and Nicholas Stavri (Thorp Stavri).

The research residency has been designed to support 10 early-career visual artists over five days in August 2022. It offers time and space in Two Temple Place, a historically significant heritage building and cultural venue in central London, a bursary and a series of talks underpinned by robust support and mentoring.

With a view to developing new creative explorations, the residency is likely to culminate in an exhibition and programme of events slated for spring 2023 at Two Temple Place, and based on the artists’ findings during the residency.

Eligibility: The call is open to emerging or mid-career artists with a demonstrable track record of professional practice, and with the right to work in the UK.

What you get:

  • An artist bursary of £500 to assist with travel, materials, research and the development of new avenues of artistic exploration that responds to Two Temple Place in a manner that best suits the artist's thinking.
  • Space and time to reflect, research and work within Two Temple Place. The building will be open from 1000 - 1800 with open access throughout the building between these times.
  • A series of talks and sharing sessions led and facilitated by industry professionals including lecturers in historic architectural processes, Curators, senior exhibition staff and artists. These are designed to open up the building, inspire new approaches to processes and practice, and encourage artists to exchange ideas and test new creative ground.
  • Artists features with Media Partner FAD Magazine.
