ROSL Visual Art Scholars 2016 announced

Tahi Moore, New Zealand, selected by The Grundy, Blackpool; Jessica Yu, Australia, selected by Rhubaba, Edinburgh; Bogosi Sekhukhuni, South Africa selected by Auto Italia, London.

Each year Hospitalfield and partners The Royal Over-Seas League work with new commissioning organisations, supporting them to research and select commonwealth artists to undertake a month long residency at Hospitalfield. The residency, which will take place between 5 September – 2 October 2016, also gives the opportunity for site visits and meetings with the commissioning organisations which will result in public projects the following year.

The ROSL Scholars are part of the wider Autumn Residency at Hospitalfield which hosts UK and UK based visual artists.

The Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL) is a unique not-for-profit membership organisation committed to supporting international friendship and understanding. For over 60 years ROSL ARTS has developed a diverse portfolio of activities in music, visual arts, and literature, devoted to the career development of outstanding young professional artists and musicians from the UK and the Commonwealth.
