The Control Room Commission

Our residency in the Control Room is now underway!

Each artist will take a week in the space to make work in the windows, using a set toolkit of materials to respond to the theme of ‘Control’. 

Our first artist began work on Monday 13th February and the residency runs until 31st March. The participating artists are:

Their aim is to produce large-scale illustrations in the space using a variety of different mediums, creating striking images on the windows. As the project progresses and the artists hand over to one another, their work will become provocations for the following artist, so that the work changes and grows week to week, keeping the audience constantly engaged and intrigued.

Watch this space for regular updates!
