Gareth Proskourine-Barnett and Oliver Tirré have been selected for the Common Ground residency which aims to catalyse new relationships between artists and organisations in the West and East Midlands.

The residency coincides with the gallery’s yearlong celebration of sculpture in all its forms, marking the 60th anniversary of Sir Jacob Epstein’s death.

The New Art Gallery Walsall and Eastside Project have worked in partnership since 2012 to offer residency opportunities that create space for artists to work together, make new work and develop new networks across the UK.
