Celebrating five years of supporting boundary-pushing creative talent, Somerset House Studios opens its doors for the first large-scale event since the pandemic with AGM.

About

Since its inception in 2016, Somerset House Studios has welcomed 116 artists as residents, with an additional 12 undertaking short-term residencies from Finland, Germany, Canada, Peru, Mexico and beyond. The theme this year will celebrate the return of community, after over a year of displacement and isolation due to the pandemic. 

For the first time, AGM will partner with neighbours St Mary Le Strand, located across the newly-pedestrianised Strand Aldwych. The Baroque church will host performances of ‘Latent Joy’, a new music collaboration within the Studios community, led by artists Paul Purgas and Vivienne Griffin plus invited guests.

Back in the Lancaster Rooms within Somerset House, fashion designer, choreographer and Studios' resident Saul Nash presents a new movement piece that continues the story of his Spring/Summer '22 runway show, 'Fragments', and a live set from the defiantly experimental Lisbon producer DJ Nigga Fox. In the River Rooms, the QTIBPOC led sound system, B.O.S.S., takes over the decks with friends and family for the night.
