I can’t believe I was given this life-changing opportunity. My research at Studio Voltaire will involve various engagements with creative individuals in independent publishing, the queer community, artists, curators, activists, archivists and people in South London. Through these interactions, I will open dialogues and exchange ideas about art production, publishing and archiving practices. I am very grateful to the LOEWE FOUNDATION and Studio Voltaire for giving me the chance to live and learn in London for a year.
– said Beatrix Pang.

The LOEWE FOUNDATION and the Studio Voltaire Prize strive to increase and strengthen equitable representation and access, and to amplify artistic voices across class, race, gender, sexuality and disability. In 2021, seven UK-based artists received two years of support in the form of free studio space, professional development opportunities and scholarships. The winners were Ayo Akingbade, Ufuoma Essi, Adam Farah, Nnena Kalu, Djofray Makumbu, Josiah Moktar and Curtly Thoma. – from LOEWE.
