An international artist and producer exchange programme, hosted by Artsadmin and Bangkok 1899
What is LAB X?
LAB X is a nine-month artist development programme that confronts the profound challenges for artists and producers to work internationally, brought on by politically shifting environments, the ongoing Climate Crisis and the effects of COVID-19.
Artsadmin and Bangkok 1899 have co-designed a holistic cultural and artistic exchange between Thailand and the UK to connect emerging artists, producers and arts sectors across the two regions.
Artsadmin will host a Thai-based artist for two weeks at Toynbee Studios in London, whilst Bangkok 1899 will host a UK-based artist for two weeks in Bangkok.
LAB X prioritises cross-collaboration between artists, disciplines, and contexts. Each artist will be provided with:
- £1000 fee
- 2 weeks of studio space
- Material budget
- Research and development budget
The programme is an opportunity for artists and producers across locality to engage in mentorship, artistic dialogues and cross-sector support.
LAB X is a pilot programme and is being looked after by a small team. For this iteration of the programme, each organisation will nominate and co-select the artists for the exchange through a closed call.
