Graduate Residency: November 2019

01 November 2019 - 30 November 2019

Join us for the next Artwalk to see the resulting exhibition of their work, flipped: a pop-up exhibition by Mandy Gamsu, Charlotte Southall, and Amelia Frances Wood.

The three artists have been in residence at The Art House Wakefield throughout November, finding the similarities and differences between their practices along the way. During November’s Artwalk Wakefield, they present a show of individual and collaborative works.

Amelia Frances Wood
Amelia Frances Wood’s practice spans across sculpture, drawing, textile, sound and performance to create a bricolage of installations. Her work concerns theories of perception, categorisation, attitudes and control.

Charlotte Southall
Charlotte Southall works across media and disciplines to fill the spaces between URL and IRL in the forms of installations and digital pieces. Her primary interest is in the potential of a space to be transformed into an alternate reality through art. Using a deliberately ‘amateur’ aesthetic, she aims for her work to feel approachable and relatable.

Mandy Gamsu
Mandy Gamsu is a multi-disciplinary visual artist who is interested in exploring form, colour and space through collage, painting and sculpture. She enjoys playing with different curatorial decisions, creating scenes, narratives, and conversations between the elements of the work and the viewer.

About the Graduate Residency programme

Our graduate residencies offer an opportunity for recent graduates to spend four weeks at The Art House developing their practice outside of the university setting. As well as having studio, workshop and accommodation space, the participants receive a bursary towards materials and living costs while on the residency. We provide a responsive workshop programme and tutorial sessions around topics such as applying for funding, project management and budgeting and how these can be integrated into continued professional practice.

The Art House works with graduates from a small selection of Fine Art Ba and Ma courses at universities across the North. We are privileged to work with The University of Leeds, Leeds Arts University, Liverpool John Moores University, The University of Lincoln and The University of Huddersfield.
