New Contemporaries Studio Residency in partnership with Hospitalfield, Angus provides a month-long research and development opportunity

We are delighted to announce that Alicia Reyes McNamara (NC Alumni 2016) is the recipient of our Studio Residency in partnership with Hospitalfield, Angus.

I will use my time during Hospitalfeild Studio Residency to research non-binary and gender variance present within Aztec and Mesoamerican culture, and use these findings to inspire a new body of work. 

Alicia completed her MFA at University of Oxford Ruskin School of Art in 2016. Her work has been included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016. She was soon after awarded the South London Gallery Graduate Residency 2016-17.
