The New Flesh is a residency programme that commissions emerging artists working with moving image to produce new works using the facilities and costumes at Academy Costumes. As one of the UK's leading costumiers for stage and screen, they have worked on productions such as Back to the Future II, Saving Private Ryan and War Horse, as well as making for individuals such as Prince and Kate Moss. The artists receive mentoring, a studio desk space, a stipend, a production budget, technical support and access to a film studio whilst they are in residence. The newly commissioned works are presented through a solo presentation at LUX, one of the UK’s leading organisations for artist’s moving image. It represents the country’s only significant collection of artists’ film and video, and is the largest distributor of such work in Europe. The New Flesh aims to support early career artists and those underrepresented in education. It was established and curated by Georgie Brinkman.
Academy Costumes is based in the heart of London, and is within walking distance of major galleries such at Tate Modern and Hayward Gallery.
