Artist residency / Preswyliad artist

Arcadecardiff offer one artist a six month residency in the Arcadecardiff with a view to exhibit in the gallery at the end of the residency.

Details of the next residency will feature on this website. Our current residency artist is Mandy lane who is with us until November 2017.

Arcadecardiff is an artist led contemporary project space and gallery in the Queens Arcade shopping centre, right in the middle of Cardiff. We are here to support emerging and established artists, and to give artists a platform to take risks and try new things. We exhibit a new show every three weeks, and this makes for a vibrant and energised atmosphere.

The artist in residency will have free use of ArcadeCardiff’s unit, equip and materials; and the mentorship, support and guidance of gallery staff and associated artists. The artist will also have the chance to be involved in the daily work of the gallery, gaining valuable experience and meeting lots of other art practitioners. There is no artist fee associated with this residency.

At the end of the six month residency the artist will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in the gallery, to give a talk and run a workshop with the public.

To see the studio watch Sean Olsen’s robot Littleears2 as it takes a journey around the basement as part of his previous residency.
