Call for applications: Artist in Residence
Application deadline: Monday, July 15, 2013, 9am GMT
Start date: September 2013 (not negotiable)

Newcastle University
Newcastle upon Tyne,
Tyne and Wear NE1 7RU,
United Kingdom

Salary: 27,854 GBP per annum

We are seeking to appoint a visual artist for a one-year studio-based residency in Fine Art, School of Arts and Cultures at Newcastle University. The residency will culminate in a solo show at Matt’s Gallery, London in 2014. During the residency the artist will be based full-time in the Fine Art studios in Newcastle University and will be expected to locate in or near Newcastle for the duration of the Residency. Work(s) developed during the residency will form the basis of an exhibition at Matt’s Gallery, London, following the ethos of the gallery that rests upon the presentation of work developed on site.

The post signals an exciting new collaboration between Matt’s Gallery and Fine Art at Newcastle University and the successful candidate will be selected by a panel representing both organisations including Director of Matt’s Gallery Robin Klassnik. We are entirely open about the kind of artist we want to appoint, though we anticipate appointing an artist with an exciting and dynamic visual art practice that lends itself to being developed in interesting ways through the opportunity to work with a leading UK gallery and art school.

Funding is available from the Bartlett Bequest to appoint one artist for an initial period of one year. Further details and informal enquiries concerning the position can be made to Andrew Burton, Professor of Fine Art:

Start date: September 2013 (not negotiable)
