Intoart meets with Liam O’Connor

Last week our Exhibtion Road Drawing Resident, Liam O’Connor, met with a group from Intoart who are currently spending time at the V&A to get inspiration from the collections for their own drawing projects. Some of the group are interested specifically in architecture so it was a great oppurtunity to share ideas and look at different sources of inspiration. Liam brought along some work he has been doing since the start of his residency so the group could get a good idea of what it takes to be an Artist in Residence at the V&A.

Intoart are spending one day a week at the Museum for 6 weeks to develop ideas that will lead to the creation of trails that will be downloadable for the public from the V&A website. After their time here they will go back to their studio to develop their trails. We can’t wait to see everyone’s personal approach to viewing the collections and the drawings they will make of some very interesting objects.
