Past Belfast Exchange Gallery Exhibition

Apply Now: BX Summer Residencies

15 May to 31 May 2014

For the second year running we are opening up the Exchange Space to be used for a series of short work-space residencies over the summer months.

Designed to support emerging Northern Irish artists working with Photography, this programme offers a two week unpaid workspace residency in the Exchange Space for artists to research and develop ideas. We welcome submissions from artists working within the medium of photography, digital imagery and installations that incorporate photography.

The residency offers time and space for artists to explore new ideas and present work in progress, gaining feedback though public interaction, artist talks, screenings and peer critiques.

Residents will have access to the darkroom, the photographic studio suite and the BX Library alongside opportunities for engaging with BX staff and archive material.


Application Procedure
