Residencies at Elephant Lab
Elephant believes that visual thinking triggers societal thinking. In the spirit of this belief, we have established Elephant Lab; a space to foster creativity and feed curiosity. We encourage experimentation and collaboration, bringing artists together with scientists to investigate the correlation between life and art.
Elephant Lab offers artists time, space, materials and access to specialized knowledge. Housed in a large (34m²), well-lit and fully equipped artists’ studio, Elephant Lab is located next to the Innovation & Development laboratory of Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris at the Studio Building in West London, close to our new home of Elephant West.
Practising artists are invited to make proposals for a one month residency at Elephant Lab. Here is an environment where artists can investigate and innovate with materials offered by the fine art brands, supported with specialist technical knowledge from the chemists in the I&D laboratory and art professionals on the Elephant team. All proposals should have one or more of the following attributes:
Who Can Apply
All practising artists other than students are eligible to apply. We accept proposals from individuals, and pairs of artists wishing to collaborate.
Proposals are reviewed quarterly in January, April, July and October. Shortlisted artists are invited to the Studio Building for interview and successful applicants can expect to take up their residency approximately three months after the review date. The next deadline is 26 October for two residencies in December and January 2019. For further information and an application form click below.
