The Art for the Environment International Artist Residency Programme (AER) was launched in 2015 by member of the UAL Research Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) and UAL Chair of Art and the Environment Professor Lucy Orta and coordinated by CSF Associate Curator Camilla Palestra.
We can announce that Gonçalo Birra – MA Fine Art 2016 Alumni, Chelsea College of Arts has been selected for this years’ AER 2017 Residency at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) seeks to provide a centre of international, national and regional importance for the production, exhibition and appreciation of modern and contemporary sculpture.
The revelatory nature of YSP opens up possibilities and encourages exploration of the relationship between art and nature, stimulating engagement and adventure in the surroundings.
This residency takes place within the grounds of YSP, giving privileged out-of-hours access to respond to the park’s diverse natural environment, as well as a unique opportunity to create work that can engage with the YSP visitors in new ways.
