Since February 2019 Fondazione Memmo and Gasworks are working in partnership to offer a fully funded residency at Gasworks, London, for an artist based in Italy. As part of the Fondazione Memmo’s mission, the residency for Italian artists, conceived in cooperation with Ilaria Puri Purini, focuses on practitioners interested in working outside their local context bringing Italian contemporary art into an international arena.
Gasworks’ residencies are opportunities for self-led professional development, artistic exchange and experimentation. They encourage artists undertake new research and widen their networks in order to support the development of their practice.
Diego Marcon has undertaken the residency for Italian artists at Gasworks in 2020, he has been in London from January to March 2020.
The 2021 edition has been postponed due to the world pandemic emergency and Adelaide Cioni has been selected for residency between January and March 2022.
Francis Offaman is the artist awarded in 2023.
