Commissioned by Gasworks through the Freelands Artist Programme. With additional support from Cockayne—Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation; and Exhibition Programme Supporter 2017-18, Catherine Petitgas.


Rachal Bradley is the second artist to benefit from the Freelands Artist Programme, a 3-year programme for emerging artists based outside London, made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Freelands Foundation. The programme combines Gasworks’ 3 month residency with an exhibition and a series of public events. 

The Freelands Artist Programme marks an exciting new departure for Gasworks, whose groundbreaking residency programme is known for supporting emerging international artists and can now, for the first time, be offered to a UK-based artist. The programme provides the selected artists with the freedom to research and develop new work in London, while also receiving curatorial support towards an exhibition and a public programme at Gasworks. The 2016/17 Freelands Artist Programme recipient was Jamie Crewe.
