A paid residency for five West Midlands based artists in any stage of their development, to produce a solo show in response to their community engagement and research of ‘Heterotopias’. Each successful proposal will be experienced as a one month residency per artist at Asylum Art Gallery and studio spaces, where the research will inform an artistic outcome in the form of a solo exhibition at the end of the month. The process, research and outcomes will also be presented in a group show with an academic publication that encapsulates all five artist’s journey.
