Deadline: 26 September 2016

Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency

Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and the Stuart Hall Foundation are pleased to announce a new collaborative artist’s residency opportunity commencing in January 2017.

The Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency is a funded opportunity for an artist to be in residence at Iniva’s Stuart Hall Library over a three-month period, allow a visual artist the space to think about some of the key themes related to the work of Iniva and the Foundation including: the language of the international, diaspora, culture, politics and identity, archives and archiving. Building on the distinct connections between both organisations, the residency offers a visual artist the opportunity to develop their practice by excavating the ideas contained within the library, taking the writings of Professor Stuart Hall as a starting point.

An outcome of the residency is expected although the format of this is not prescriptive: it could be in the form of a presentation, a discreet site-specific intervention, a small publication, a debate, etc. The artist is expected be to in residence over a three-month period from January to March 2017 and to spend at least five days per month researching in the library. As the library is in constant use, the artist will be unable to have a studio/production space on site.

The selected artist will receive a total sum of £4,500, and be given support to pursue their research in the library as well as produce a creative outcome. The residency does not include accommodation.

To apply, please download and read the application brief here and submit all requested materials by Monday 26 September 2016.
