The Royal Standard is an artist-led gallery, studios and social workspace in Liverpool. Through a dynamic and challenging gallery programme that brings together local, national and international artists, we aim to showcase the most exciting, innovative exhibitions and events that we can, working with the most outstanding recent graduates and emerging artists as well as more established practitioners and other artist-led initiatives.
The Royal Standard invites artists working in all media and at any stage in their career to apply for our 2012 Artist Residency Programme.
Applications are welcomed from artists based in the UK and overseas, and although we cannot accept applications from current undergraduate students we welcome applications from recent graduates.
One artist will be selected to work in our gallery space for a period of one month, followed by the opportunity to showcase any work made during a culminating event. This presentation of the work produced during the residency is not restricted to a conventional exhibition format however and could take the form of a discussion, screening, performance, etc.
Priority will be given to artists who best intend to use the opportunity, time and money available to advance their practice and develop an engaging and exciting project at The Royal Standard.
Resident artists will receive ongoing support from the Directors of The Royal Standard – a group of five artists, curators and writers – throughout the residency period and the conception and delivery of the outcome. Opportunities to meet with local artists, initiatives and curators will also be made available, in addition to the benefits of working in a new studio environment with an extended social network.
