Artists’ Legacies in the Museum

Expressions of interest are being invited for Artists’ Legacies in the Museum, a project run by the Art360 Foundation with the International Curators Forum and supported by Art Fund. The project will engage museum curatorial teams with the archives of Vanley Burke, Donald Rodney and Maud Sulter, to help recalibrate how institutions collect, share and preserve contemporary art and cultural heritage for future generations.

Learnings from the project will be shared through short films, a public event and a toolkit on preserving the legacies of Black British Artists in the museum. This will be an iterative document which will evolve over time alongside new thinking, generations and climates.

You can download the project prospectus here.

The project calls for:

  • Three independent curators or researchers. Download the application form here. Deadline: Monday 14 March 12pm.
  • Three UK-based museums with permanent collections to take part in archive Study Days, Strategic Meetings and a public event. Download the application form here. Application deadline: Friday 13 May 12pm
  • Expressions of interest from prospective toolkit consultants. The Art360 Foundation are asking applicants to get in touch directly with details of their relevant experience.
