The Barber Shop, Norwich, UK

The Barbershop – an empty ex-barbers shop front that offered artists a unique type of work space – was opened by Dyad as a residency space toward the end of 2015 and ran for over a year. In that time, Dyad put out an open call for artists and oversaw 27 residencies for 53 artists.

The glass shop window offered passers-by the opportunity to gain insight into the artists’ various processes, putting artistic practice in an untraditional and subversive setting, as well as offering the artists working there plenty of exposure.
