This initiative is designed to support emerging artists affiliated with Bath Spa University and
The California Institute for the Arts (CalArts) by offering locations to live and work for an
intensive period of short-term residency in Los Angeles, USA and Somerset, UK. The
program encourages independent work while providing support through contact with
academics, curators and artists; the residency will foster conditions for reflection and
spirited critical debate. The residencies are at Bath School of Art & Design, Bath Spa
University, Bath, UK and California Institute for the Arts, Valencia, California for the duration
of the programme. Hauser & Wirth Somerset and Hauser Wirth & Schimmel will support
each location respectively and encourage opportunity for the successful candidate to
benefit from the activities at the galleries.
