The University of Reading Art Collection in partnership with Reading Museum are seeking an artist in residence to use our upcoming exhibition at Reading Museum, Rubens to Sickert: The Study of Drawing (6 May – 22 August), to pose questions around diversity in drawing practices and to produce a new commission for the University of Reading Art Collection, responding to the exhibition. We invite stories that may be missing from a largely western canonical exhibition; e.g. stories of disabled bodies, bodies of colour, bodies of different genders, drawing practices and education from non-Western cultures.
Opportunity is open to professional artists at any stage of their career, with drawing as an element of their practice.
Residency and commission fee: £6,000
Deadline 20 January 2020
