Artist in Residence



The SLG is seeking an engaging and energetic Researcher-in-Residence to work closely with the Art Assassins, the SLG’s youth forum, to explore, unpick and make accessible the archive of materials collected by government anthropologist Northcote W Thomas in Nigeria and Sierra Leone from 1909–1915.

Taking the lead from the Art Assassins, you will explore the relevance of this incredible archive for young people today and help them produce work in response to the material for an exhibition in the SLG’s Fire Station annexe. Working with a number of different artists and SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies), this role will bridge the gap between complex ideas and academic information and a group of young people who are keen to interrogate their own histories.

Deadline 19 August 2019
