An exciting time for the V&A as they prepare to host their first Korean artist in residence this October for a period of 6 months:
V&A Samsung Korean Digital Art Residency
1 October 2015 – 31 March 2016
Bursary: £10,000 for six months (subject to tax and national insurance)
Plus one standard return flight to the UK for international residents
Deadline for applications – Midnight, 30 June, 2015
Interview dates – 15 and 16 July 2015 via Skype (between 9:30 am and 1:30 pm London time)
The V&A is inviting applications from artists with Korean nationality (based in the UK and internationally) working with digital media (including moving image, webtoons, games, interactive art, software and Internet art) who wish to develop their practice in new ways by working with the V&A’s collections and developing public engagement activities.
The Residency will be based in a studio at the V&A’s South Kensington site in London and will take place over a six-month period from 1 October 2015 – 31 March 2016. The Museum will provide a monthly bursary (taxable), one standard return flight to the UK and additional budget for materials needed for any public facing activities.
A team drawn from the Museum’s staff will provide support throughout the project. We are interested in practitioners who wish to work with the Museum’s resources and collections and would welcome the opportunity to actively work on projects with the public.
The Residency Programme is integral to the philosophy of the V&A, helping to make the Museum’s learning programmes dynamic and creative. For more information on the residency programme: www.vam.ac.uk/residencies
