The National Gallery established its Modern and Contemporary Projects Programme to reflect critically on the gallery’s collection, its history and on the institution itself.
The programme comprises a partnership with the Contemporary Art Society and the designation of the National Gallery Artist in Residence, a twelve-month appointment in collaboration with a non-London museum member. The Artist in Residence is appointed by a jury that includes a representative from the partner museum. The artist enjoys access to the on-site artist’s studio at the gallery and receives a stipend for London living and childcare. The residency culminates with a display of work within the permanent collection, and published documentation of the artist’s practice and the residency.
With the generous support of trustee Anna Yang and her husband, Joe Schull, we then acquire a work from the residency for the permanent collection at the partner museum.
