• Working Project • is proud to present our second artist in residence, Alexander James. Born in 1993, James lives and works in London where he studied at the notable Camberwell School of Arts receiving a BA in illustration where he focused mainly on moving image and painting. Since leaving Camberwell James’ work has been exhibited in London & Berlin and following his three-month residency at Working Project (11 October - 31st December) he will exhibit work for the first time in New York.

As a child, he was guided by his grandfather’s documentary skills and insistence on watching black and white Native American films. This inspired James’ earlier video experimentations leading to a lat- er decision to include himself as the main subject of his work. A Kid Who Walked The Plank, his first show at Working Project continues his questioning and intrigue of the artist and self as a biographical figure in his work.

Alex will have a solo exhibition with working project called A Kid Who Walked the Plank.

Private View : Thursday 25th October , 6-9pm. Open from : 26th - 28th October 10-6pm


The Working Project in collaboration with Arcade Project host a two-month artist residency with Thomas Langley, a multidisclipinary artist who has recently graduated from the Royal Academy. Tom explores the universal truths of the artistic condition with text paintings like "Buy Mum a House" and anti-aesthetic gloopy sculptures made from bits of coloured polyurethane, wood and foam. 

The residency co-exists inside Whiteleys and creates a space for the artist to develop his practice inside a bygone Victorian building offering a spectacular studio space of around 1,00 square foot with extraordinary natural light.

The residency will result in a solo show at the Arcade Project starting on the 8th September and will run until 10th October 2018.
