an artist development programme facilitating physical and online residencies, film screenings and public events and workshops
from our home, started in 2018
Residency 11:11 is an artist-led residency initiated by Abel Shah in 2018, aiming to be shaped by the needs of its own residents and contributors. We accept proposals from all practitioners for whom it is relevant to spend time working in London. The programme aims to connect its guests to the city’s artistic landscape, encouraging practitioners to explore local discourses and collaborations.
We support site specific research by opening up the programme’s network of contacts to each resident, a self-elected group of contributors and participants known as Friends of 11:11.
By creating transnational connections, Residency 11:11 asks questions about the role of the artist and how this can differ across borders, histories and economies. In an uncertain time with lack of accessible space, the residency aims to open up dialogues between London-based artists and practitioners and those working further afield.
This residency is a space to discuss, reflect, research and gain feedback on your practice. Offering housing and desk space, but no ‘conventional’ artist studio facilities, we’re interested in proposals which consider the role of the artist and challenges how knowledge is generated and shared outside the "studio".
Late 2019 we established an online residency. Our online residency focusses on providing space for art practitioners to develop an online project. We aim to provide support for work which engages with ideas around accessibility, the use of the online and the distribution of “knowledge” in a digital age. The online residency seeks to address and contextualise the why and the how of using the online as artists.
