Bubblegum Residency is a multidisciplinary studio residency established by the founders of Bubblegum Club. The mission of the residency is to support, platform and develop the careers of emerging artists through opportunities to create and sell work. The residency prioritises emerging artists aged 20 – 29. Participating artists will receive a studio space, curatorial support, press and marketing support, and a stipend totalling R5000 for the production and exhibition of their work.
The residency is purely production based, therefore, artists who submit developed ideas with a thorough production plan—will stand a greater chance of selection. The artist in residence will complete a month-long residency, where they will produce and install new work for exhibition at Bubblegum Gallery in Braamfontein. The residency is full-time and will take place in Johannesburg. Applications for the residency are also open to artists living outside of Johannesburg, however, these artists will be responsible for their own transport to and from the city—as well as for their own accommodation and living expenses while in Johannesburg.
Application deadline: 25th January 2021.
