Fine Arts programme
Visual Art and Architecture Residencies
From our foundation, the BSR has brought together visual artists and architects of the highest calibre to work and develop their practice in this unique, multidisciplinary community.
Today, those who win residential studio awards represent the very best of established and up-and-coming contemporary practitioners in the UK and the Commonwealth: they draw on and contribute to the BSR’s uniquely lively and engaged intellectual environment to enhance their own practice and research.
Our residential awards give 3 to 12 months in one of our seven catered en-suite studios.
Award holders are supported by a dedicated Visual Art Residency and Programme Curator, Marta Pellerini, who co-ordinates the ” Mostra” of work by the awardees as well as providing practical advice and information. Resident artists also benefit from the experience of Jacopo Benci, the Senior Research Fellow in Modern Studies and Contemporary Visual Culture, whose research crosses many media with particular reference to Italian post-war cinema.
The Mostra of the work of BSR award-holders, is held three times per year in March, June and December.
