Self-Directed Research Residency



Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers are happy to award the Career Launcher opportunity for a 6-week Self-Directed Research Residency to: Aaron Jones, Cameron Lamonthe, Joel Lee, and Bidemi Oloyede

The Self-Director Residency provided opportunity for emerging collectives and individual artists working with or around photography to propose new works that engage with the gallery’s programming and publishing history. Selected applicants worked collaboratively in a self-directed research residency that will take place between November 12th and December 21st, 2018. The research culminated in an open studio session at the end of the residency. 

With the support of the Prefix team, the residents were provided full access to the Prefix gallery, reference library, programming archives and a shared budget of $500.
