Projects & Finlay Room, RSA Lower Galleries
An exhibition of recent RSA Residency for Scotland Artists.
Since its inception in 2009, the RSA Residencies for Scotland programme has awarded a total of £147k, supporting 52 artists at 26 venues across the length and breadth of Scotland! Now a regular feature in the RSA exhibitions calendar, this dynamic group exhibition presents a selection of the most recent residency artists, highlighting the results of opportunities taken with residency centres and centres of excellence across Scotland.
The Royal Scottish Academy maintains a unique position in Scotland as an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose sole purpose is to promote and support contemporary Scottish art. In addition to our exhibitions programme, a fundamental role of the RSA is the developmental support of artists towards the creation of new work. Together with partner funders, the RSA disburses over £250,000 worth of funds to artists at all stages of their careers, through the sales of works, monetary awards, scholarships and residencies each year, in addition to a host of in-kind exhibition, technical access, and studio memberships.
