ReFrame – Commission in Residence opportunity
New Art Exchange (NAE) are delighted to be collaborating with FABRIC (Dance4 and DanceXchange) in a new partnership that supports a shared ambition to enable artists and audiences to be with dance and choreography in the gallery context.

Together, NAE and FABRIC are pleased to announce Re-Frame, a commission in residence opportunity, for an artist working in the field of dance, movement and/or chorography to experiment with cross disciplinary practice in the context of a visual art gallery and produce a new piece of work.

Re-Frame intends to encourage the exploration of dance outside of traditional dance spaces, with dance in the gallery being a particular area of interest. Re-Frame aims to support dance artists to share embodied practice, stories, transfer knowledge, cultural heritage and offer a new lens for audiences to see, hear, listen. Re-Frame is open to artists from the Global Majority working in the first 10 years of their career and living in the Midlands*.
