RSA Lower Galleries
Since its inception in 2009, RSA Residencies for Scotland has awarded over 191K to 69 artists at 27 venues across 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, self-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.
