Autumn Residencies

Maryam Monalisa Gharavi is an artist and writer whose work explores the interplay between aesthetic and political valences in the public domain. Her work in film, video, performance, photography, drawing, sound, and text appears in a variety of international exhibitions and publications. She was previously an artist-in-resident at Delfina Foundation, London, Darat al Funun, Amman and Mansion, Beirut. In 2016 she published three books: a translation of Waly Salomão's Algaravias: Echo Chamber (Ugly Duckling Presse), the poetry volume The Distancing Effect (BlazeVOX), and the drawing/text artist publication Apparent Horizon 2 (Bonington Gallery). Gharavi is currently based in the USA.

Imran Perretta’s work addresses biopower, marginality and the (de)construction of cultural histories. His multi-disciplinary practice encompasses the moving-image, sound, performance and poetry. Recent exhibitions include brother to brother for JVA Solo Presentations, Jerwood Space, London; it wasn't a crash, in the usual sense, Arcadia Missa, London; Pale News (in collaboration with Milo van der Maaden) commissioned by the Chisenhale Gallery and performed in Victoria Park, London; 5 percent for Copenhagen Art Week, Denmark, and Devotions at MOT International Project Space, London. Perretta is based in south London.

Morgan Quaintance is a London-based writer, musician, broadcaster and curator. He is a regular contributor to Art Monthly, and a contributing editor for E-Flux’s online publishing portal art agenda. He is also a founding member of the curatorial collective DAM PROJECTS and until recently held the Cubitt Curatorial Fellowship 2016-17. Quaintance is based in London.
