Art Licks

On the Heights

Art Licks launched in 2010 and has since grown to provide an essential platform and voice for the lesser-known and under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in London. The organisation currently exists in several strands of activity: as a website, tours, events, printed magazine and its festival, the Art Licks Weekend.

We first supported Art Licks in 2013 and 2014 through Art Licks Weekend.

Our support will go towards a project run in partnership with Yorkshire Sculpture Park that Art Licks will curate. Four artists will undertake a two-week residency in April 2017 to develop work to be shown there later in the year. The artists will have access to a peer network facilitated by Art Licks and each receive a fee of £1000 in addition to access to a materials budget. The selected artists are: Miriam Austin, Sam Belinfante, Tom Lovelace and Frances Scott.

The project is also supported by The Ampersand Foundation and Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts.
