The scheme, in its second year, offers recent graduates the opportunity to make use of a shared studio space for one year with additional mentoring and support from Grand Union’s curatorial team. Set up in 2017, it offers those graduated from BCU from the five previous years the opportunity to support their practice at a crucial stage with working space, access to studio facilities and critical feedback from experienced curators.

The selected graduates this year are: Betsy Bradley, Frederick Hubble, Navi Kaur, and Infinite Opera. With practices ranging from art and pedagogy, fine art, participatory practice and multi-disciplinary opera, this year’s studio-holders represent a diversity of approaches to art-making and will develop new work in the studios which complement Grand Union’s other 12-studios and artist-run ceramic facility, Modern Clay.

Stuart Whipps, a Senior Lecturer at Birmingham School of Art and a founder of Grand Union said:

Grand Union hosts a year-long programme of events, exhibitions and workshops. The graduate residency scheme is one part of Grand Union’s commitment to supporting innovative artistic and curatorial talent.
