Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been making studio visits with Anneka French to artists we are going to be working with in the Long Gallery. Although they were not all at studios, the conversations were all equally inspiring, albeit very different.

On the 18th, we started off in Birmingham, at All Bar One, then Urban Coffee (by way of the New Art West Midlands show at BMAG), and finishing the day in the Centre for Fine Art Research at the Birmingham School of Art. This week, we were in London, initially at an artist’s home studio in Mile End, followed by the Chocolate Factory in Dalston.

Today we were back in Birmingham, going from two artists working in the studios in Great Tindall Street out to Edgbaston, (by way of the Ikon). It's such diverse group of artists that I'm starting to get a sense of how radically their work is going to alter the space it's going into.

We've two more artists to visit, in London, in a couple of weeks time. Who are they all? Well, once they're all confirmed, we'll be releasing more information.
