3 months residency in Lagos, Nigeria
The Arthouse Foundation is a newly created non-profit initiative of Arthouse Contemporary, a West Africa’s auction house of modern and contemporary art.
With a newly renovated building in the heart of Ikoyi, the Artist Residency Programme is at the heart of the Arthouse Foundation’s activities, offering live/work residencies throughout the year in three-month sessions. Each resident artist is offered a studio space, mentorship, art materials and logistical support for the creation of a new artistic project during their residency that engages the city of Lagos.
The Arthouse Foundation Residency Programme includes an intensive public initiative throughout each residency, including an artist’s talk, workshop, open studios and roundtable discussion. The Arthouse Foundation Residency Programme culminates in an end of the year exhibition showcasing the resident’s new artistic projects.
