Deadline: Monday 17 February 2020
Here, There and Everywhere : Residency and Exhibition is a one month residency followed by a solo exhibition in two gallery spaces, which form part of the main Tetley exhibition spaces. The selected artist will work in partnership with the Nigerian and West African community based in Leeds. Although there is a participatory element of the residency it is not a requirement to have had experience working with communities, the successful artist will have support from The Tetley and partners to produce work for the exhibition.
About The Tetley: The residency and exhibition will be hosted by The Tetley, Leeds. The Tetley is a pioneering centre for contemporary art located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery on Leeds South Bank. Our 1930s building was transformed in 2013 to house unique gallery spaces, a learning studio for our award-winning participation programme, an artist residency studio, offices for creative businesses, a Bar & Kitchen and spaces for meetings and events.
For artists, we are mentors and champions, providing support, investment and development time and space. To the public and our communities, we are a destination to explore new and exciting works, take part in workshops, talks and events and explore their creative selves.
Over 130,000 people each year visit the Tetley to discover, create, relax and learn and we believe that everyone deserves to explore their cultural potential no matter their economic background, from messy play workshops for the under-fives, to professional artists at a pivotal point of their career.
