Opportunity: Call for Embedded Artist (National Islands Plan)

7th May 2019

Placement & Commission opportunity for a visual artist based on a Scottish Island

We are inviting applications from visual artists living on Scottish Islands to undertake a Placement & Commission framed around, and directly responding to, the development of Scotland’s first ever National Islands Plan by the Scottish Government and the unprecedented Islands-wide consultation process that is currently being carried out in order to gather the views of island communities in association with this. The selected artist will join the consultation team on a number of consultation events taking place in different Islands through June-July, as Embedded Artist. Following the Placement period, s/he will be supported to produce new work based on this experience, culminating in an exhibition in the autumn that will subsequently tour to island venues.

The Placement & Commission are fully funded and the anticipated maximum commitment is 25 days. The artist must be able to fulfil an agreed timetable between June – November 2019. Travel costs between island locations and a production budget are provided.

The NIP Embedded Artist Placement & Commission opportunity is offered and funded by the Scottish Government. The initiative has been developed and will be coordinated at The Glasgow School of Art by curator Mónica Laiseca (Senior Lecturer in Curatorial Practice – Contemporary Art), working in collaboration with fellow artist Susan Brind (Reader in Contemporary Art: Practice & Events) and the research centre Reading Landscape.
