Stryx opens its doors this Digbeth First Friday to introduce you to the recently selected SLOW COOKER: soup ptIV artists in residence: Ian Andrews, Frederick Hubble, Amy McLelland, Tom Kilby and duo Emily Scarrott + Hannah Taylor

The artists will present works that represent their current practices spanning performance, sculpture, video and installation, alongside a video installation discussing their artistic concerns and outlining their individual aims for the residency project.

SLOW COOKER is a new and exciting artist residency and development of the SOUP residency programme at Stryx, aimed at facilitating artistic collaborations and networks, forming relationships to build a strong connected arts community.

Selected artists will be based at Stryx for the duration of 2 months, producing new work that will tour between Stryx, Asylum Gallery, Meter Room, Direct Art Action and Artists Workhouse from July to December 2017.

The Soup residency programme awards emerging artists in the West Midlands the opportunity to work in the culturally thriving heart of Birmingham, Digbeth.

The residency offers artists time and space to develop projects, as well as having the opportunity to integrate themselves into the local artistic community. The residency is intended for emerging artists who will benefit by creating work amongst other artists of varying disciplines and specialisms.
