Artist’s Residencies in the City
Many artists harbour in the back of their minds a
dream project they would dearly love to carry out, but are prevented from
doing so due to practical considerations. So the years go by, until finally,
on his deathbed, the poor artist is heard muttering: ‘If only I
had done this or that…’
The painter Timothy Hyman was given a grant, enabling him to ride the London Eye time and time again. He has also been given the keys to other tall structures in London, such as Guy’s Hospital.
The painter and installation artist Joanna Whittle* was given an opportunity to create an ambitious installation on the no. 38 bus route between Clapton Pond and Piccadilly Circus.

The exhibitions resulting from the residencies were held at the Terrace Gallery, the Museum of London, in December 2004.
We currently do not have the funding for further residencies.
*Joanna Whittle replaced Helen Eger who had to withdraw.
