The Centre for Drawing Project Space at Wimbledon College of Art is part of The Centre for Drawing Research Centre of the University of the Arts, London. The Centre for Drawing aims to provide a focus for research into the investigative and generative practice of drawing, the material procedures as a tool for the realization of ideas and the critical and conceptual apparatus of drawing. The Project Space gives artists and researchers the opportunity to spend an extended period investigating and documenting their drawing practice as an autonomous activity.

Kreider + O'Leary were artists-in-residence in The Project Space for one month (August-September 2009). The residency directly followed their trip to the Kansai region of Japan where they enacted and documented 14 site-specific performances entitled Video Shakkei. The residency allowed for a time and space to reflect on this experience, and to bring together the documentation as well as reflective process in a large-scale exhibition entitled Video Shakkei: Space, Performance, Drawing.
