Stuart Hall Foundation and Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) are accepting applications for the second Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency commencing in February 2018. The residency is a funded opportunity for an artist to be in residence at Iniva’s Stuart Hall Library over a three-month period from February to April 2018. The selected artist will receive a total sum of £4,500 and given support to pursue their research in the library.
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 (1932 - 2014) as a starting point.
They are particularly interested in working with an artist whose practice is informed by perspectives on politics, identity and activism; who is interested in the language of the international and ideas around diaspora; and whose methodology may relate to notions of archiving and the archival.
Deadline: 5pm, Monday 25 September 2017.
