We are looking to appoint an Artist-in-Residence to work with community
groups and exhibition audiences to create a digital artwork during Ben
Uri’s Centenary exhibition, Art, Identity, Migration: 100 Years of Ben Uri
in London 1915–2015 at the Inigo Rooms in Somerset House between July and
December 2015.

The Artist in Residence will work with community groups to create an
artwork that uses the collection as inspiration to respond to the question:
‘What does migration mean in contemporary society?’.

The Artist in Residence will deliver formal participatory sessions with
community participants to help produce project outcomes, as well as engage
more informally with exhibition visitors to produce a final artwork
relating to the exhibition and its engagement activities. Other key
responsibilities will include delivering a presentation evening of the
artist’ final collaborative work at the end of the exhibition, deliver
community workshops, and take part in the evaluation and documentation of
the project.

This is a part-time position between May and December 2015 with flexible
and occasionally evening and week-end working hours.

We are interested in appointing an artist with an interest in working
digitally and collaboratively and with the themes of migration and
identity.

Fee dependent on experience

Contact Alice Odin, Learning and Community Engagement Officer with a brief
statement and links to artwork.
