Art Residency for visual arts
Hi, I have taken Art Residency for visual arts as my design project with undercurrent research on architecture for places of art. The project aims at designing a place for artists from various genres of art(contemporary to traditional) like pottery, painting, sculpture and photography to come under one roof and work.

The residency will offer studios, storage, art gallery, residential space and facilities like food court . It will be a place for artists to come and work temporarily and create a piece of art. I need case studies regarding this topic in India. Please send in your suggestions. Thanks.

Gurleen, what you propose reminds me of an artist-artisan commune / colony established somewhere in the middle of England in the 1930s and similarly I believe the Greenwich Village area in New York was and is(?) famous for being an artists` colony.

In fact, there have been quite a number of famous "schools of art" which in reality were informal gatherings / colonies / communes of artists, such as existed in Newlyn (?) in Cornwall in SW England.

The problem for most artists is that art is very labour intensive and so there is often a wide gap between producing a work of art and being able to sell the work of art. Therefore, there is always a need for artists to work and live in cheap accomodation.

Hmm...U r right bt according research ,, I think now days scenario is changing ,,..... Nowadays participation in a 'residency programme' has become a much-desired stage in many an artist career. Furthermore, the art world can no longer do without the artist-in-residence sector. Large funding organizations like Unesco-Aschberg, the Ford Foundation and many governments stimulate participation in residency programmes for idealistic reasons. Residential art centres organize themselves nationally and internationally to support each other and to represent their interests.
Quality standards are rising and application procedures for artist-in-residence programmes are becoming more and more competitive. The variety in residency models has increased: nomadic projects, collaborate with neighbourhood art galleries , collaborative residencies, and inter-disciplinary workshops.
So artist may find opportunity to get good accommodation n platform where they can show his art product n can sell his it....
