London Borough of Culture 2019 has announced an open call for a major new artist residency marking two of 2019's milestones: the centenary of the Bauhaus movement and the first ever London Borough of Culture in Waltham Forest.
This landmark residency entitled Form, Function and The Outdoors provides a unique opportunity for an established artist, designer or sculptor to explore how ideas stemming from the Bauhaus movement have influenced culture locally.
The chosen artist will draw upon the proud history and strong contemporary culture of making and light industry in the area and work across two of the borough's iconic sites: Walthamstow Wetlands and the William Morris Gallery.
The project will conclude with a major exhibition Pioneers of Modernism. William Morris and Bauhaus at the William Morris Gallery, which will open in October 2019.
