Praxis Artspace Studio Residency

The praxis ARTSPACE Studio Residency provides an emerging South Australian artist with a six-month studio space at praxis ARTSPACE and is suitable for artists working across a wide range of mediums.

The selected artist will be awarded a rent-free studio space, providing them the critical time, space, and freedom to both create new work, and develop their practice.

Located within the vibrant Bowden precinct, praxis ARTSPACE Studios was established in January 2019, and comprises 12 artists’ studios. Sitting adjacent to praxis ARTSPACE Gallery, this creative hub is focused on supporting a diverse range of artistic talent through its studios and exhibition program.

praxis ARTSPACE encourages an effective teamwork environment, and provides the opportunity for artists to experiment, play and take risks developing new work. Should the successful applicant be interested, the opportunity exists to work alongside Director, Patty Chehade and Curator Gabi Lane to observe and learn curatorial practices.

Measuring 4 x 4 metres, with surrounding MDF walls, the studio includes:

  • WiFi
  • 24-hour access
  • Communal area, including kitchenette, toilet and shower
  • Onsite parking
  • Artist profile on the Praxis Artspace website

Applications will be judged independently, and while being a resident artist does not guarantee an exhibition, if successful the application costs will be waived. This is equivalent to up to an additional $550 in-kind.

A dedicated studio at praxis ARTSPACE represents a unique opportunity for an artist to base their practice within a vibrant, and supportive artistic community; allowing for meaningful career and skills development, inspiration, and networking.

The residency is open to visual artists, up to five years following their final year of study from the Helpmann Academy’s partner institutions.

Interested applicants are recommended to visit praxis ARTSPACE Studios to get a sense of the spaces available. Email Gabi Lane at [email protected] to arrange a time to visit, or with any questions.
Or visit the gallery during opening times: Wednesday – Saturday, 11:00am – 4:00pm.
