Matthew Herbert Residency

Home > Projects > Matthew Herbert Residency

Metal is proud to announce its support of Matthew Herbert’s project ‘Nude’.


‘Nude’ reimagines the formal and conceptual frameworks of ‘the nude’ in art and society, exploring its contemporary aesthetic, philosophical and ethical landscapes.

Matthew’s residency at Metal comprised a week of musical production alongside dinner with local artists, academics and member of the public. The residency concluded with a ‘Process’ event in which Matthew shared his work in progress and discussed ideas relating to the nude.

This Metal residency will enable a range of viewpoints to inform the work through an open discourse between the project’s creators and academics, curators, artists, philosophers and the general public.
