The 1.11 residency is a newly created project that collaborates with LJMU, School of Art and Design .
- The residency is designed to create opportunities for recent graduates from LJMU with vital support from The Royal Standard.
- 1.11 offers the space for six months to two projects that were hand selected from submissions earlier this year. The projects were chosen for their experimental and risk-taking concepts and the ambition to create something new.
- The first residency began on the 1st of July 2015 and ends on the 31st of December 2015. The second residency will begin on the 1st January 2016 and end on the 30th of June 2016.
- Each project has the full support of The Royal Standard’s facilities, peer-to-peer advice from studio members and directors, 24 hour access and the freedom to develop exciting new work and curatorial methods.
- The conditions of Residency 1.11 are that each project must have a minimum of four public events and an innovative programme that The Royal Standard has yet to see in another project.
Project 1: 6GINS
6GINS is a six month evolving project space based within the Royal Standard studios, founded by Lucy Bretherton and James Worley. Constant activity and collaboration between individuals is key. Involved collaborators have license to respond to the space as they find it, with the opportunity to remove, add or alter as much or as little as they deem fit. The extent to their participation is entirely up to the collaborators.
Project 2: Muesli
Working under the name Muesli, Meg Brain, Mia Cathcart and Zoë Coogan will invite a variety of artists to swap spaces. By exchanging time and experience, Muesli will use the space as a platform to directly engage with other contemporary art spaces and projects, creating a dialogue between the North West and further afield.
