11:11’s London residency

Open Call for 11:11 London residency, in November 2024 (duration 4 weeks) in collaboration withIniva’s specialist collections library: Stuart Hall Library

Deadline to apply July 1st (Midnight BST) 2024

Resident selected by the end of July 2024

We are hosting a public Zoom event to ask questions on the application process 20 June at 1pm (BST). Zoom link will be added here.

11:11’s London residency is a one-month residency set in Residency 11:11 founders Alex Bell and Giulia Shah’s home in London. For a duration of one month, the residency aims to connect its guests to the city’s artistic landscape, encouraging practitioners to explore local discourses and collaborations. The residency is housed in an informal and homely shared flat with Residency 11:11 founders Alex and Giulia. We do not offer studio space, but time to reflect and research. Residency 11:11 supports art practitioners by opening up our network, curatorial guidance and offering the opportunity to host a public presentation and gain feedback on their practice. By creating transnational connections we are interested in diverse practices that question the role of art and how this can differ across borders, histories and economies. 

For our November residency we are partnering with Iniva’s archive and Stuart Hall Library, offering a research residency to a practitioner with a strong interest in special collections, artists archives and archival practices. With Stuart Hall Library being a specialist library that centres art and theory publications from the Global Majority, African, Asian, Caribbean, Polynesian, Latinx, and Diaspora perspectives, we are seeking proposals that centre diasporic perspectives and identity. 


The practitioner would be invited to engage with iniva’s Artist File Collection, which documents radical and emergent contemporary artistic practice centering Global Majority, African, Asian, and Caribbean diaspora perspectives between 1994–2005.  The collection primarily contains various amounts of ephemera in the form of gallery invitations, press releases, 35mm slides, biographies, press clippings and much more. 

The residency will be concluded with a public engagement moment at Iniva, here in London. 

Due to the intimate nature of the residency being housed in our home we can only offer space to one artist per residency. Residency 11:11 does not have a permanent public space but we collaborate and partner with local organisations to facilitate our public programme. 

We are a queer women run organisation and prioritise giving opportunities to artists who identify as women, as queer, as non-binary and trans. 

Residency 11:11’s 2024 programme is supported by Arts Council England.
