Program Description

NAVE provides time, space and an inspiring environment for making aimed towards a select group of artist producing exceptional work. This residency is directed towards contemporary thinkers and makers who demonstrate a critical engagement and inquiry towards their practice. We function within a 'self – run' model meaning every resident is responsible for the use of their own time. Although not mandatory we do encourage our residents to give a brief talk open to the general public either on their own work or any relevant topic. Group critiques, panels exhibitions and parties are to be organized to the discretion and consensus of the group. Exhibition and event promotion is handled by Nave under Nave/New Works platform.
