Artists Housing Prototype Show

Ideas for housing by internationally acclaimed artists feature in the Artists Housing Prototype Show at Artcore in Derby from the 31st January 2019 to the 1st March 2019.

The exhibition launch is from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday 31st January 2019.

The exhibition is open until the 1st March 2019, Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

Normanton-based arts organisation, Artcore, is exhibiting Artists Housing Prototype Show.

The exhibition will feature new ideas, models and prototypes for Artists Housing by Liam Gillick, Jasleen Kaur and Studio Morison. It is being produced and curated by Artcore and Eastside Projects and supported by the University of Derby and Arts Council England.  

 Artists Housing Prototype Show proposes that an Artists House is a home, workspace and public artwork in one powerful combination. Then, Artists Housing is real social housing.

 Artcore is presenting the exhibition as a response to: 

·     The needs of Derby’s artists and the lack of live/work and exhibition spaces in the city.


·     National and local debates about the need for affordable housing.


·     New thinking about the usefulness of art and artists in relation to the needs of communities and the development and regeneration of neighbourhoods, villages, towns and cities.

Ruchita Shaikh, Artcore’s Executive Director, said: ‘Artists Housing Prototype Show offers new ways of thinking about and supporting the key role that artists have to play in the development of Derby’s communities and built environment. All are welcome at Artcore to engage with the ideas and proposals produced by Liam Gillick, Jasleen Kaur and Studio Morison and curated by Eastside Projects.’
