New Contemporaries is delighted to be offering a month long studio bursary in partnership with Elephant from February 2019 to March 2019. The opportunity is mainly but not exclusively for artists who use paint as their primary medium in their practice.
The opportunity to apply for a free studio at Elephant Lab is open to all Bloomberg New Contemporaries Alumni from the last 5 years (2014 to 2018 inclusive).
About 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 the new home of Elephant West.
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.
