We are delighted to announce the Summer Residency artists; Tamsin Corrigan, Naomi Morris, Jezella Pigott and Tommy Watkins. They will be working at OVADA throughout August on a range of different projects. The residency will provide time and space for research, experimentation, reflection, dialogue and creative risk-taking. There is no prescribed outcome; the opportunity is solely focused on the development of the artist’s practice rather than a completed artwork.
