Brunel University is seeking an Artist in Residence for a project beginning this autumn that aims to creatively explore the University’s physical location on the outskirts of London, while valorising the diversity and experiences of our staff and students alike. Entitled ‘You ARE here!’ the residency will take place at Brunel’s Uxbridge campus between October 2018 and June 2019. They are looking for an early-to-mid-career artist, whose practice could be centred in any of the arts, but whose dynamism leads them to be engaged with all. Applicants should have an interest in celebrating the diversity of heritages represented by our staff and student bodies through enhancing a sense of physical rootedness and by engaging with the dynamics of place-and-space to re-imagine our regional identity. The residency will involve collaboration with staff and students to inspire, co-ordinate and produce a series of virtual and actual outputs, including an exhibition at the University’s own gallery. The Resident will receive a fee of £21,000 payable in equal instalments over the duration of the residency and based on completion of project milestones. In addition, a sum of up to £10,000 will be made available to support production and project costs for the residency, including but not limited to any equipment, software, materials and technical support required.
