VARI Embedded Residency

Website: http://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/artists-residence-va/new-open-call-for-nominations-applications-vari-embedded-residency-for-practitioners-working-with-data

The Victoria & Albert Museum Research Institute (VARI) is inviting nominations and applications for a yearlong embedded residency at the Museum for practitioners working with data as their medium. The appointed resident will be based at the V&A South Kensington’s Research Department on a part-time basis between October 2017 and October 2018.

The V&A holds considerable quantities of data and of information about its collection objects, and digital infrastructures increasingly form the connective tissue between objects, information, curators and visitors – both in house and online. Working with the multiple layers of collections information held in the V&A Museum, they would like the VARI Embedded Resident to make data-focused works that propose new points of entry, navigation and engagement with both collections and the information that they hold about them, eliciting meaningful forms of participation both onsite and offsite, and by the widest range of possible publics.

The VARI Residencies are supported through a stipend of £12,000 and a production/research/public engagement budget of £2,000.
