Studio Projects 2018

Market Gallery is now inviting applications for Studio Projects – a four to five week residency opportunity for two artists and creative practitioners taking place in August / September this year.

Selected residents are given shared access of our gallery space, and each will receive a production budget of £500, an artist fee of £600, the creative and practical support of the committee, and a public outcome or open studio event in the months following the residency.

Set in our shop front gallery, Studio Projects is a visible working space and we favour applications from practitioners who will be based on site for the majority of the residency. In keeping with the notion of a studio in its most inclusive definition, the space may be used by the residents as a place to; think, make work, build, research, rehearse, host meetings, conduct private or public events, etc.

Applications should take the form of a single PDF document comprised a statement of intent (500 words max) alongside five supporting items that convey your current interests. These can take the form of documentation of past works, research materials, online links, texts, or whatever you deem appropriate for your application. Accomodation for this residency is not supported. If you are applying from outwith Glasgow/Lanarkshire please inform us so we may assist you if possible.

Deadline for submissions is midnight on Monday 5th March and applicants will be notified on the week of 2nd April. Please send completed applications to with the subject heading Studio Projects 2018.
