Open call, Expression of Interest: 2019 Studio Commission, Horniman Museum and Gardens


We are looking for an exceptional artist with a collaborative practice for our 2019 Studio commission.

The Studio is an exciting, new contemporary arts space at the Horniman, as well as a collaboration between the Horniman, artists and local community partners. The successful artist will join the Collective, the working group who programme the Studio. The chosen artist will be commissioned to create a new artwork as part of an exhibition opening to the public in October 2019. The artist will have an interest in exploring 'memory'. Museums and anthropology collections play a vital role in mediating memory and have a particular responsibility in how they present the way the past speaks to the present and contributes to future-making.

The Studio will open for the very first time in October 2018. The Studio aims to be a hub for exciting events and activities alongside its exhibitions programme, co-curated by artists, community groups and partners working with the Horniman.
