Structures Residency is a two-week evolving exhibition and residency of international artists whose practice is informed by networks, frameworks and systems. Bringing together 25 artists from the UK, Europe, and the US, the residency enables an exchange of methods, approaches and ideas. The artists will work together in an open-plan studio space in one half of the upper gallery, alongside an evolving exhibition of work made during the residency.  

The lower gallery will present a static exhibition of work to illustrate their usual practice and give a context to their time in the residency. The open nature of studio and exhibition in one space will enable conversations between visitors and artists.

As part of the residency, we have put together a series of events that will be running throughout February alongside the two-week evolving exhibition at Newlyn Art Gallery. These events provide an outstanding opportunity for young and emerging artists to work with both national and international professionals. You are invited to attend free with admission to the following events:

  • Thur 15 Feb, 16:00 – A talk and group discussion led by Heather Sheehan (Germany/US) about the ambivalent role of structure, or lack of, within art practice. A view into residency project plans versus results.
  • Sat 17 Feb, 10:30 – 13:00 – Join Georgia Gendall for an informal workshop inspired by her ongoing project Each participant will write instructions to make an artwork, which is passed to another to create from a supply of provided materials. No experience necessary, and lunch will be provided to participants.
  • Fri 23 Feb, 16:00 – A discussion between artist Ivo Ringe and Neil Armstrong, plant expert and founder of Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens about structures in nature and art.

The Structures Kitchen will pop up in the café for the two weeks, providing street food from around the world for the artists and visitors. Tue – Sat, 12.00 – 14.00.

Structures Residency is generously supported by Midas Group, Falmouth School of Art, Aspects Holidays and Cultivator Cornwall.
