Residency: Project Based

Tschabalala Self

1 – 15 September 2017

The Residency:

Liquitex International Residency Program is a program of residencies, recently launched, with 9 artists, over 12 months, across three cities: New York, San Francisco and London. 

Developed as an ongoing series, the initial residencies began in summer 2017 and will continue through August 2018. In the US, we have partnered with Residency Unlimited in New York City and Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco. Our London studio will also host 3 American artists who have been invited over to work with our materials, including the newly developed Cadmium Free range of paints which offer a the same quality as cadmiums but are safer for artists to use.

Tschabalala Self:

Tschabalala Self describes her current work as “exploring the emotional, physical and psychological impact of the black female body.” Showcasing an eclectic blend of colors and textiles, her thought-provoking work was recently featured at solo exhibitions in Rome and London.

During her Liquitex Cadmium-Free Research Residency at the Griffin Gallery Studios in London, Self worked on a large-scale mural for a local charity called Hospital Rooms. Using the safer cadmium-free paints was extremely important to Self because she knew her mural would eventually end up in a health facility used by adolescents.
