Once again, Martyrs’ Gallery and Project Space in Lewes will be kicking off the year’s programme with FRESH AiR, a series of one-week micro-residencies in February 2018, offering the opportunity to explore new, experimental or large-scale work in the gallery.

Artists, or, exceptionally, groups of artists, may use the space (approx. 5m x 7m) undisturbed for up to 5 days (Mon–Fri), to create, curate or install, and must then be willing to present their work or work-in-progress to the public for one weekend. FRESH AiR artists will also be considered for inclusion in the gallery’s main exhibition programme for 2019 and beyond.

Previous FRESH AiR artists have included Diana Burch, Patricia Thornton, Rachael Adams, Robert Littleford, Andrew James, Alex Julyan, Francesca Duffield and Nikki Davidson-Bowman.

Please email a brief synopsis of proposed work together with any supporting material (images, CV, statement, etc.) in a single PDF file to Alex Grey at, indicating your preference, if any, out of the following slots: week ending 10/11 February, 17/18 February or 24/25 February. Any questions/queries can also be emailed to Please put ‘Fresh Air – Proposal’ or ‘Fresh Air – Query’ in the subject line.
