UH artists in residence

UH Arts has an ongoing commitment to host artists in residence in the School of Creative Arts. During the 2015/16 academic year, Permindar Kaur was resident in the studios alongside Fine Art students, and the work she produced during her 6-month residency was exhibited in the Art & Design gallery throughout April.

UH Arts took this opportunity to establish a relationship between their residency programme and researchers in the School of Creative Arts. Initially, this took the form of a blog, written by Barbara Brownie, that tracks the development of Permindar's exhibition, and reflects on the themes explored in her work. The final blog post has just been posted, and the complete list can be viewed here: The blog provided readers an opportunity to engage with Permindar's work as it developed in the studio, and prompted Permindar to consider a variety of possible responses to her planned installations.

UH Arts now intends to expand the blog, to record and reflect upon future residencies, with artists including Elizabeth Murton, Lyndall Phelps and Katy Gillam-Hull. They also hope to expand the authorship of the blog, to invite contributions from other staff across the University of Hertfordshire.
