Project News: ALAS Residency

Today I started a residency at the Matt Roberts Arts Gallery in Vyner Street, East London. ALAS, the Artist-Led Art Society, has been established by Matt Roberts Arts as a means of sharing knowledge about professional contemporary arts practice. Successful applicants will attend lectures and receive one-to-one tuition while creating new work, which will be shown in an exhibition at the new Matt Roberts Arts Gallery (previously Nettie Horn / Vilma Gold) in November 2012.

Matt Roberts Arts is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2006 to create opportunities for artists in new locations and contexts. I will be pursuing this professional development programme on a part-time basis from June until the scheme ends in November. The exhibition, a group show of all ALAS residents' work, will open on Thursday 8th November 2012.
