Star date: 9th September 2018

CAUSTIC COASTAL LAUNCHES £2,000 ARTIST EXCHANGE RESIDENCY IN CLERMONT AND OPENS LATEST DAN SZOR AND HEATHER GLAZZARD SHOW

Any artist living or working in Salford can now apply for a two week exchange residency in the city's twin town, Clermont Ferrand, which comes complete with over £2,000 for travel, expenses and materials.

Meanwhile, Caustic Coastal launches its latest show, Turkey Burglar, by Dan Szor, with photos by Heather Glazzard, at its gallery this Friday 14th September. Expect a pyre 'burning' a godlike Michelin man figure.

Full details here...


Caustic Coastal has partnered with Artistes en Résidence in Salford's twin town of Clermont Ferrand to provide an artist residency exchange for two visual artists living or working in Salford.

The residency includes two weeks free studio space and living accommodation in Clermont Ferrand between 17th November and 1st December, and there's £250 travel expenses, £1,400 living expenses and £500 for materials on offer, courtesy of the Arts Council and Salford City Council.

Two French artists will be over in Salford for a similar exchange between 2nd and 15th December...

"All four artists will be provided with space in their supporting town to work with the exchange artists, providing artistic and critical support, alongside vital local knowledge" states Caustic Coastal "The exchange is as much about providing time to spend in a new town to make work as it is to work with and around practitioners from the host town forming new creative relationships."

Applications are open until midnight Sunday 23rd September. See the Caustic Coastal website for full details and application form – click here. Or there are physical forms available at Caustic Coastal from Thursday to Saturday 2pm-6pm*, and in the foyer of Salford Museum and Art Gallery.

Meanwhile, the Oldfield Road creative space launches its latest show, Turkey Burgler, this Friday 14th September; an installation of new work by Dan Szor and photography from Heather Glazzard, downstairs in The Fridge. There will also be a final chance to see Caustic's current show, Couture Secession, in the gallery space before it closes..

"Dan's a lecturer on Fashion Communication at Salford and Heather was one of his pupils who's now currently based at the Mill" says Caustic's Dean "It's gonna be a kind of iconographic wonderland to Dan's notion of 'Ragga' - a neologism he uses to describe various 'off' aspects of his work. It'll include a pyre in the centre of it all 'burning' a godlike Michelin man figure..."

How can anyone resist? It's going to be a proper happening...

Salford Council can afford to contribute to something like this, but not keep nurseries open??
