Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency 2018

The Stuart Hall Library

The Stuart Hall Library

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.
