PAC Home Library Residency
Plymouth Arts Centre are inviting artists to apply for a 6 week residency in the PAC Home space, with a focus on the PAC Home Library archive, to celebrate Plymouth Arts Centre’s 70th birthday.
By responding to the PAC Home Library, PAC is seeking artists, writers or curators who are interested in ‘the archive’ as a point of reference, investigating the dynamic between archival material or specific texts held in the Library. This residency is designed to support the artist both practically and critically by offering a short but vital period of time in the development of research, process and methodology. The selected artist will be expected to present two Reading Group sessions during the residency, which will act as an opportunity to present and discuss the work in progress.
Applicants are expected to be emerging/mid-career artists engaged with contemporary art practice and pursuing a professional, distinctive and critically informed artist career.
