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.

Previous BSR Visual Art residents include: Richard Billingham, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Oona Grimes, Celia Hempton, Holly Hendry, Winifred Knights, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Eddie Peake, Elizabeth Price, Laure Prouvost, Mark Wallinger and Cerith Wyn-Evans.

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 exhibitions of work by the awardees as well as providing practical advice and information.

The Mostra of the work of BSR award-holders, is held three times per year in March, June and December.
