King’s Artists

Collaborations and artist residencies across the university

King’s Artists provides opportunities for artists to be resident within faculties across the university and aims to support residencies that place collaboration with students and staff across disciplines to embrace creativity and take risks, developing new thinking and creative outputs.

King’s has a long history of hosting and working with artists across its faculties and within its wide range of research areas, bringing together over 35 artist residences that have connected academic research with art through a range of media including painting, printing, literature, theatre, music, performance, installation, photography, video, textiles, waxwork modelling, ceramics and fashion.Many of the artists and academics have presented the work and research developed at King’s during residencies on national and international platforms. 

If you have an artist residency at King's that could be featured on the webpages, or who would like to add information to an existing King’s Artist page, place contact rosanna.1.mcnamara@kcl.ac.uk.
