Conall McAteer, BA Fine Art 2012 graduate has been awarded a LIFE BOAT residency through ArtQuest, ACAVA and ArtsTemps and will receive a free studio space in Vyner Street, Bethnal Green for a year.
On winning the residency Conall says:
The hardest moment in your career will undoubtedly be the transition from student to practicioner – so to have a place to work to allow you to continue to be productive once you leave University will be a great key.
Conall was also the winner of the Clyde and Co Blank Canvas Award which was open to graduating Fine Art students from across UAL. His winning commission, ‘Not For Love Nor Money’ curates an exhibition of sixty of the most expensive, heavily insured and highly guarded artworks to date using QR codes. ‘Not For Love Nor Money’ is installed at Clyde and Co, 138 Houndsditch, London.
In addition to the residency and award, Conall is currently working on a commission for a publication and intervention work in an estate in Barking and Dagenham.
