The New Flesh is an individually tailored program for an artist, or collective, to use the facilities and resources of Academy Costumes to develop a new video work. The artist receives curatorial and technical support from art collective ZOOX, including mentoring sessions from other artists, gallery visits, and reading material. We expect the artist to create a new work as a result of the residency which will be exhibited or screened at LUX.

Each residency lasts approximately 4 months and is intended to support emerging artists with no gallery representation, and preferably without having completed an MA course.


Artists receive:

a daily wage for three days per week (total £4800)
a production budget (to be assigned according to artist's needs)
a desk studio space at Academy Costumes
access to costumes and facilities at Academy Costumes
access to a film studio
mentoring from artists Jennet Thomas and Molly Palmer, and staff at LUX
a solo presentation, and online screening of their work at LUX
 presentation of their work Berwick Film and Media Art Festival 2019 (TBC)
support in developing a public artist talk
access to Nikon D5500 camera
small library of books at Academy Costumes
  technical support for the production of their work

During our first pilot of the residency Platform generously provided a studio space two days per week, as well as hosting a solo exhibition for Sophie Rogers. We also curated several associated events such as artist talks and screenings which were held at Platform.
