Museum Residency: New Media

The V&A is inviting applications from experienced and established 
practitioners for a New Media residency in the Sackler Centre for Arts 
Education, the first in an exciting new programme of residencies.

We are particularly interested in UK based practitioners, who wish to 
work with the Museum’s spaces and use the facilities in our new Digital 
Studio with visitors, and who have a track record of development and 
regular exposure of new work.

Purpose of the Residency

The new Sackler Centre at the V&A, opening in Spring 2008, will have 
two studios for museum residencies which will be occupied by artists/ 
craftspeople/ designers/ writers/ performers/ architects/ film and 
video makers etc. There will be 4 residencies of 6 months ( 26 weeks ) 
each year. This programme is integral to the philosophy of the Sackler 
Centre, helping to make it a dynamic, creative space. The residency 
offers practitioners the opportunity to develop new work, re-assess 
their practice or see work in different contexts by responding to and 
working with the Museum’s collections and to promote greater 
understanding of art and design processes for the public.


The aims of the residency are to:

·      Enable the selected practitioner to carry out research, develop 
new skills and explore new ideas towards the creation of new work in 
the future

·      Promote greater understanding of new media production processes 
for the V&A’s audiences.

·      Create links between the V&A’s collections and contemporary art 
practice.

·      Develop practitioners as ‘artist educators’.

·      Raise the profile of contemporary art practice with the V&A’s 
diverse audiences.

 

The residencies will include a research and developmentphase, enabling 
practitioners to consider new directions for their own work, work with 
the collections and plan a project with the public. This could include 
holding open studios, running workshops or master classes, giving talks 
and presentations or working with specific groups to produce work for 
display. This programme of work will be negotiated with the successful 
candidate and confirmed by the V&A. Any additional activities, such as 
involvement in the Museum’s public programme will be separately 
negotiated and an appropriate additional fee agreed.

 

The resident artist will be supported in their public projects by the 
V&A’s experienced Education, Access and Diversity staff. This will make 
a significant contribution to the artist’s own CPD and help to develop 
a pool of ‘artist educators’ for future museum projects.

 

Expectations

The focus of the residencies will be on process and on engagement with 
audiences. We would like to achieve a balance of benefits for the 
artist, the public and the V&A. Evaluation is a very important 
component of the residency programme since we will be piloting new 
approaches and the resident will be asked to contribute to this.

 

Residents will be expected to:

·      be based in the museum for a minimum of 3 days per week

·      open their studio to the public for a minimum of one weekday, 
two late night Fridays per month and one weekend per month (to be 
arranged in advance)

·      display work in progress in their studio (there may also be 
other opportunities for display elsewhere)

·      contribute to the process of dissemination on the V&A website

·      provide feedback for the purposes of evaluation

 

Note : work produced during the residency remains the property of the 
maker, but the residency programme must be acknowledged in any 
subsequent public or press showing. Any work produced with the public 
as part of this residency is owned by the V&A .

 

Selection Criteria

The residency should be dynamic, ambitious and inspiring – pushing 
forward boundaries of perception about contemporary art and design We 
are looking for residents who can adopt a range of different roles and 
who are keen to develop those aspects of their career which include 
using collections, engaging in public programmes and communicating 
about their work. 

 

Candidates must demonstrate:

·      originality, and evidence of a strong personal style in their 
work

·      dynamic and inspiring ideas about how they would use this 
opportunity and how they intend to meet the aims of the Museum 
Residency

·      ideas for innovative ways to respond to the V&A’s collections

·      an established practice, through a track record of development 
and regular exposure of new work through exhibitions at a regional, 
national and international level

·      an interest in or experience of working in educational / 
community settings

·      an ability to work and communicate with a diverse range of people

 

Payment

This appointment will be on an Occasional Professional Assistant (OPA) 
basis and, for the avoidance of doubt, there is no intention to render 
the Resident an employee of the V&A.

 

The artist will be paid approximately £7000 during their 6 month 
residency. This will be paid on completion of agreed work stages at the 
equivalent of £1083 a month (plus 8.3% rolled up holiday pay). Please 
note that PAYE tax and NI deductions will be applied as 
appropriate. PAYE applies to this work even if you have a “schedule D” 
number, or are registered as self employed. The only exceptions are 
those persons registered as a limited company with a valid company 
registration number.  There will be an additional budget for the 
following:

• 	equipment
• 	materials
• 	technical support
• 	public programmes
• 	documentation and evaluation

This is to be agreed in negotiation with both parties.

 

Use of Studio

The Studio selected for this residency is approximately 360cm x 315 cm; 
has plywood finished walls (painted white); has one 300 cm x 500 cm 
west facing window (with blackout and solar control and is on Level 1 
of the Sackler Centre. It has water, power, light, wi-fi and space for 
display. There is both secure storage, and the capacity to lock the 
studio when not in use by the resident. The studios are suitable for a 
full range of practical work but, because of safety in the museum, this 
work should not require heavy processes or specialist ventilation. They 
can be customised with additional equipment and materials by individual 
artists to suit their work (to be agreed by the Museum).
