Whilst May and June marked the end of the first season of residencies at G.A.S. Foundation they were also a period of firsts that were realised through an organisational residency with Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) Lagos and the arrival of two economics students and researchers from the Stockholm School of Economics.
We’re excited to announce the open call for the Art Exchange: Moving Image programme, a collaborative and cross-cultural curatorial professional development and exhibition programme for early to mid-career visual arts curators from Sub-Saharan Africa working with moving image. The programme is supported by the British Council and organised by LUX, the UK agency for the support and promotion of artists working with moving image, Yinka Shonibare Foundation and Guest Artists Space (G.A.S.) Foundation, Nigeria.
In May 2023 Yinka Shonibare Foundation and Guest Artists Space Foundation announced a new collaborative open call with Tilga Art Fund, a philanthropic initiative launched by Wally Bakare to foster criticality, broaden artistic practice and engage new and exciting modes of art-making among young contemporary African artists. The grand prize of an all-expenses paid residency at Guest Artists Space Foundation was awarded to Kampala-based multidisciplinary artist Katesi Kalange
Guest Artist Space Foundation (G.A.S.) and Yinka Shonibare Foundation (Y.S.F.) are delighted to announce a call out for the second edition of the annual G.A.S. Fellowship Award. Three funded 6-8 week residencies will be offered to practitioners based in West Africa between September 2023 and March 2024 with two taking place in Lagos and one at our sister location on the G.A.S. Ecology Green Farm in Ijebu.
What do Nigeria and Sweden have in common? Our economist residents share their findings on Nigerian private capital markets from their month-long residency at G.A.S.
Join G.A.S. residents and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) postgraduate students, Alexei Moore and Miranda Hagborg as they share reflections on the dynamics of private capital in Sub-Saharan Africa. They have investigated the differences and similarities between investing in Nigeria and Sweden and dissect the role of private capital markets in Nigeria's social and economic contexts.
Your generous contributions support the Foundation’s distinctive interdisciplinary residencies, research, education programmes and public events.
