WARDLOW Art Residence aims to support lateral thinking, dedicated, and progressive artists. Wardlow is a communal and creative space; to live, work and network into a healthy art community and beyond. 3 local and international artists are selected from an open call to live in a Fitzroy warehouse and utilise their own studio and gallery. WARDLOW hosts 4 shows a year in which the gallery and speak easy bar is open to the public. This warehouse in Melbourne’s most lively art precinct, is utilised as a hub of artistic development and exhibition of works achieved by the residents.
Successful applicants are chosen on the basis of a lateral thinking mind, quality and layered creativity of artist works; perceived potential, conceptual and aesthetic balance (with other artist residents when applicable); and the ability to create thought provoking ideas and works.
Artists exhibit their residential pieces and works in situ. Alternatively, provisions can be made for major works. A final complete show is held at the end of the residency.
Cost to artists is $170 AU per week (approx $130 USD) (with free studio and no gallery rent), however, rent can sometimes be covered by a guaranteed art purchase advance.
Artists are advised to get their application in a.s.a.p as travel grants and rental discounts will be applicable for some artists. Free airfare for interstate artists and some international artists and full sponsorship is offered to some – budget permitting.
The artist household includes private bedrooms, very large workshop space, and an exclusive gallery for the 3 artists in residence… and a bar.
