A brief History



The ROSL Annual Exhibition begins. The exhibition selected the work of artists from the Commonwealth to be presented in a single, uniting exhibition in the UK.


The ROSL Annual Exhibition was restructured, presenting a group show at the OXO in London, while introducing a month-long residency for some of the overseas artists to come to the UK and stay at Hospitalfield in Arbroath.


The visual art residencies were refreshed to offer early career artists from within the Commonwealth the opportunity to develop a public project with a partner visual arts organisation. For a full list of alumni and partners see our Visual Arts Alumni page. Exhibitions began to take place regularly at Over-Seas House, London and in our Edinburgh location on Princes Street.


Our visual art residencies were once again restructured to have artists apply via an open call, to work with The Art House in Wakefield and to have two artists spend a longer period in the UK. ROSL continue to present a rolling programme of exhibitions at Over-Seas House, London.
