The London Summer Intensive 2017

31 July - 26 August 2017


An artists’ residency programme led by Camden Arts Centre & the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL.

The London Summer Intensive is a four-week residency for artists offered by the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and Camden Arts Centre. The Slade is a vibrant, world-renowned international art school and Camden Arts Centre is an influential space for contemporary art exhibitions and education.

The residency will run throughout August 2017 and focus on independent studio practice, supported by artist facilitator Jefford Horrigan and visiting artists. It will reflect the dynamic, rigorous and open-ended approaches to art-making championed by both institutions and provide a stimulating and flexible environment for 20 artists from across the world to experiment and make new work. Artists will work in studios and workshop spaces at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum and the galleries of Soho and the West End.

The programme will include artist talks, evening lectures, studio discussion – in groups and one to one – social events and curatorial and professional development. Central to the programme is a focus on working as an artist in London, a city which offers opportunities to investigate multidisciplinary practice and to visit public arts institutions, commercial galleries and artist-run spaces. Each participating artist will shape their own experience, striking a personal balance between independent studio time and the programme.

The London Summer Intensive concludes with an Open Studio at the Slade Research Centre and a showcase of ideas and work in progress at Camden Arts Centre’s Artists’ Studio. Participating artists will work with each other and curators at Camden Arts Centre to inhabit the shared space.
