Tiwani Contemporary Residencies

Tiwani Contemporary Residencies

Guest Artists Space Foundation began working collaboratively with Tiwani Contemporary in early 2022 following the opening of their new gallery space on Victoria Island, Lagos. The resulting opportunities are funded through our Fellowship Platinum Partner donor package, a giving level used to directly support three residency fellowship awards in Nigeria over a three-year period with a focus on African and African Diaspora recipients. In this instance, it allows artists who are either represented by or exhibiting with Tiwani to complete a one-month residency at G.A.S.

Guest Projects Digital 2022

Guest Projects Digital and Yinka Shonibare Foundation announced Chiizii as the recipient of a new pilot Digital Research Residency in June 2022. The initiative was conceived with the intention of providing an emerging, UK-based African and/or Caribbean diaspora curator or artist, with an opportunity to lead a collaborative research project investigating the intersection of art and design, ecology and food or migration and identity.

 

The themes and concept were inspired by the two unique buildings that lie at the heart of Guest Artists Space, the newly launched residency project in Nigeria developed by Yinka Shonibare CBE RA. The three-month residency was segmented into a two-month research period followed by a one-month digital public-facing programme.
