Outside In is looking for artists who would like to be part of a selection panel for opportunities which the charity has coming up this year. Being a selector can give you an insight into the process of how and why artists and artworks are chosen. It can also be fun, something you can add to your CV and each selector will be paid £200.
Opportunities which need Outside In selectors:
Residency at West Dean College 2020
Outside In is working in partnership with West Dean College of Arts and Conservation to provide a residency opportunity for Outside In artists. The deadline for the residency is 3rd August 2020 and the residency will take place during one week between October – December 2020. To find out more about the residency please click here.
The selected artist will be invited to respond to the College’s Historic House, Collection and Archive as part of ‘Whose Heritage? Rethinking the West Dean Collection’, a project that questions the College’s colonial ties and asks how broader social and cultural engagement can help institutional ambitions and change. We particularly encourage applications for this residency from artists of Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, who would like to explore the artefacts in the collection and the ethics around the display and interpretation of these pieces.
This opportunity might be of interest to you if:
- You have taken part in a similar research project
- If you are interested in collections of artwork held by institutions
- If you would like the experience of being a selector for Outside In and West Dean College
For this opportunity we encourage selectors who come from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
If you would like some more information or to apply for this, please contact Cornelia Marland. The deadline for showing interest is 17th July 2020.
