We are happy that BAI alumnus Allan Gardner got selected by the Royal College of Art in London. Starting in October 2018 he is going to attend the 2-year MA Contemporary Art Practice CRITICAL PRACTICE pathway program! More information on the RCA Website.

Allan Gardner reviews his participation in the Studio Program at the BERLIN ART INSTITUTE:

My time at the BAI was an essential part of my growth as an artist. Working among artists at varying stages in their career was a valuable learning experience and helped me to frame my own practice in a wider context. The studios themselves are beautiful, the other inhabitants of the building are insightful and the life in the city essential. I believe that without my time here, I would be a different artist today.

I’d like to use this opportunity to say a special thanks to Ralf and Stephanie, who have continued to maintain contact with me since my residency in 2016 – forwarding opportunities and maintaining a vested interest in my development. They always keep an open door for an alumni, I look forward to returning and seeing how the program has developed in the near future.” (Testimonial by Allan Gardner, 2018)

Allan Gardner is a Scottish artist currently based in Leeds. More information on the ALLAN GARDNER Website.
