Visit our stunning new Khyal Music and Imagination exhibition at the Laing Art Gallery, on display until the 16th November 2016. Part of an exciting project we collaborated with Durham University on, you can also try an innovative new iPad app which was developed as part of the project. Find out more here.
GemArts is continuing its work with Durham University in 2016 with a fantastic opportunity for visual artists.
“Khyal: Music and Imagination” is a project which brings together an international team of ethnomusicologists, singers of Indian classical music and visual artists to develop original artwork and deliver public engagement activities.
We are seeking to appoint a visual artist to join the project team, who will work in collaboration with musicians and academics to develop an original artwork, and deliver a school workshop in the North East of England.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and talented artist at the early stage of his/her career, with a degree in visual arts or equivalent, excellent teamwork skills, and an interest in exploring new and collaborative ways of working. While he/she will not be expected to have any technical knowledge of music or previous experience of Indian music, he/she will be willing to develop an original artwork after a period of dialogue and consultation with other team members.
