Brighton Photo Fringe are seeking an artist in residence. The BPF18 Artist in Residence opportunity provides the time and space for an artist to research and create a new project of work, culminating in an exhibition at Colonnade House in Worthing during BPF18.
The artist will have access to a network of peers and mentors during the residency and in turn the artist will be given the opportunity to mentor students in photography at the Northbrook Metropolitan College in Worthing during autumn 2018.
A small production budget will be available and the work will be exhibited in the larger of the two spaces at Colonnade House. The Artist in Residence will be given mentor support by BPF staff.
In addition, photographic artists are invited to enter work for the BPF Open 18 Solo ( Still image) and the BPF Open 18 (Moving image.) Selected photographic artists working primarily with still image could exhibit at ONCA in Brighton as part of a shortlist of 20 or be selected as our solo artist for 2018, whilst photographic artists working with moving image could have their work shown at ONCA in Brighton as part of a shortlist of up to 10 artists, alongside the festival’s keynote solo exhibition.
The festival will run from 29th September to 28th October 2018, alongside the internationally acclaimed Brighton Photo Biennial.
