Residency 11:11 is an artist-led residency initiated by Giulia Shah in 2018, aiming to be shaped by the needs of its own residents and contributors. We accept proposals from all practitioners for whom it is relevant to spend time working in London. The programme aims to connect its guests to the city’s artistic landscape, encouraging practitioners to explore local discourses and collaborations.

We support site specific research by opening up the programme’s network of contacts to each resident, a self-elected group of contributers and participants known as Friends of 11:11.

By creating transnational connections, Residency 11:11 asks questions about the role of the artist and how this can differ across borders, histories and economies. In an uncertain time with lack of accessible space, the residency aims to open up dialogues between London-based artists and practitioners and those working further afield.

This residency is a space to discuss, reflect, research and gain feedback on your practice. Offering housing and desk space, but no ‘conventional’ artist studio facilities, we’re interested in proposals which consider the role of the artist and challenges how knowledge is generated and shared outside of the “studio”.

Previous residents research can be explored here.

In late 2019 the online residency programme was established, specifically in response to the use of the internet and web-based platforms as tools for sharing and disseminating information in all senses. The use of the online space also allows access and participation from residents, contributors and viewers, previously not with the means to do so. The online residency can be accessed here.
