Yinka Shonibare Foundation
Guest Projects Digital
Guest Artists Space (G.A.S.) Foundation, an artist residency with sites in Lagos and Ijebu has announced its first Founding Patron following a transformative donation from Still Earth Holdings, a group of companies whose operations span the oil and gas, construction, and financial services sector.
The Foundation and its projects have continued to generate both local and international interest since our last press update, with features secured in publications based in Europe, Africa and Asia. We've catalogued some of our favourite coverage from the first quarter of 2023 here, and for the first time are including a piece generated by G.A.S. Foundation alumni which demonstrates beautifully the potential impact that a residency can offer.
April proved to be the busiest month to date at Guest Artists Space Foundation. A total of five practitioners based across Benin, the UK and the US were hosted both in Lagos and the Farm House in Ijebu.
Your generous contributions support the Foundation’s distinctive interdisciplinary residencies, research, education programmes and public events.
