With the launch of the Beaconsfield venue in 1995 we pioneered what became an ongoing motif within the programme – open residency: experimental exhibitions during which artists developed their work in public – helping to demystify artistic process for visitors and giving artists direct access to their audiences. During Open House weekend we gather some projects in progress and artists currently engaged with Beaconsfield, for a public dialogue about the ideas governing Beaconsfield as a creative base for critical enquiry.
Saturday 22 October at 2pm
