Drawing Diversity: Artist Residency and Commission


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
