Somerset House Studios has announced its spring/summer programme.
Somerset House Studios has unveiled its upcoming programme of events for spring/summer 2020. Current resident Beatrice Dillon leads the announcement with a showcase of her debut album Workaround on 10 March. The evening will feature a live performance of the new record, guest appearances from Jamila Johnson-Small (Last Yearz Interesting Negro) and Eve Stainton, a percussion set from Kuljit Bhamra MBE, as well as DJ sets from TTB and Will Bankhead of The Trilogy Tapes.
Visual artist, poet and DJ Juliana Huxtable has also been announced as a new resident at the studios as part of a new scheme with the Goethe-Institut. To launch her residency, Huxtable will head up the second edition of Rounding Practice with a talk about the sustainability of artists’ work on 16 April.
Alongside the programme announcement, Somerset House Studios has opened a bursary application scheme for five artists to join their community for 12 months. The aim of the bursaries is to support artists who are underrepresented in the industry with a particular focus on those living outside of London or in the early stages of their career.
