Klatch - Cardiff

Klatch 2.0




Klatch is a painters collective which focuses on contemporary painting and creative development, experimentation, curation, and critical discussion. We are looking for artists at any career stage who respond well to painting but also work within their own media.

We welcome applications from artists at any career stage who respond well to painting but also work within their own media - drawing, painting, installation, sound, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and video are all accepted mediums.

The residency will take place from Monday 5th August until 18th August 2019. The deadline for applications is 4pm on Monday 29th July. Short-listed artists must be available for interviews during the week of July 30th until August 2nd.

A collective of painters are seeking artists to participate in a 2-week residency in Shift. The residency aims to celebrate our own distinctive approaches to contemporary painting through exhibiting work that prompts critical discussion about what it means to be a painter today. We are proposing a residency that offers artists the opportunity to engage, discuss, provoke and challenge each other within a shared space; a place to network, develop your practice in response to others, and to gain an understanding of working within an interdisciplinary environment. We welcome artists from all disciplines to explore their practice through sharing work with others and to allow others to experience in-progress and completed works. Within this residency, we aim to explore how each of our practices relates to each other and reveals the different relationships that exist between contemporary practices.
To mark the end of the residency, we will put on a closing event which will display the development of all participating artists work on Friday 16th August.

Please email us the following: • Examples of your work (this may include 5 - 10 images or short clips from film work or sound work). • Up to date artists statement. • Artist CV. Send your submission to with the subject header Klatch Residency Application. The deadline for submissions is 4pm Monday 29th July.
