A special night of live-streamed premieres, collaborations, performances, and experimental DJ sets from our expanding community of artists.

Somerset House Studios celebrates four years of its dynamic resident artist community with the first online edition of its annual building takeover series AGM. 

Featuring performances broadcast live from Somerset House, as well as from across the UK and beyond, AGM 2020 premieres five new commissions from a specially curated line-up of artists and writers, including Aida Amoako, DeForrest Brown, Jr., Josiane M.H Pozi, Rian Treanor, Tyreis Holder, plus a performance from Sarra Wild; a line-up selected by a panel of existing and alumni resident artists: Beatrice Dillon, Jesse Darling, Klein and Larry Achiampong.

Somerset House Studios’ wider resident community will also feature on the night, with works from Anna Mikkola, Malik Nashad Sharpe and Sam Williams.

This year’s edition of AGM is centred on the importance of generosity and collaboration in a time of physical separation, highlighting the impact of collaboration and bringing people together to share a platform for artistic creativity.
