SHELF is inviting applications from emerging and mid career artists for our 'I carried a watermelon' Instagram residency program which will run through Summer 2017.

Artists will take over the @shelf_london Instagram account for a period of 1 week to showcase a specific project of their own design.  This can be the narration of an idea, evidence of the workings towards which, the documentation of its completion or ideally an amalgam of all three stages of artistic musing.  

We are asking for artists to send their project proposals based on what would be most useful for them to shine a light on.  What would you carry a watermelon for?

If you haven't seen Dirty Dancing then you're lying or a fool.  Remember Jennifer Gray and the watermelon?? This could be you, swaying in the heat of the moonlight, POISED to saunter down the path at kellermans READY for your showcase and adoration. 

This is access to the party.
This is the potential to blurt out what terrifies you.
This is us asking you to take a risk, to show up and DANCE 
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 31.07.2017 (midnight)
Because of our limited resource only selected Artists will be notified at this time. Please don't be put off if you don't hear back - we will keep your details logged for future projects.
