Visual Art and Architecture

From our foundation, the British School at Rome has attracted visual artists and architects of the highest calibre to work and develop in this unique, multidisciplinary community. The BSR has seven individual en-suite studios and offers residential awards from 3 to 12 months and for all career stages and many media. 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.

Support for visual artists and resident architects is offered by the Visual Art Residency and Programme Curator, Marco Palmieri, who co-ordinates the exhibitions of work by the awardees as well as providing information, and other supports. 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. Mostre (public exhibitions) of the work of BSR award-holders, are held three times per year in December, March and June.
