Christmas is looming, the weather is rather grim, and the museum is unusually very quiet. I spend the week making a clay model and casting the plaster mould for a small ‘generic’ head. Pressings from this mould will form the common ‘core’ for a series of six modelled heads, based on the same six multi-cultural heads I’ve used in the identikit drawings.
Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
