Join in with the birds with Juneau Projects!Posted on 29.07.2020
Invisible Dust, in collaboration with Humber Museums Partnership, have commissioned Juneau Projects to develop a work inspired by North Lincolnshire Museum’s natural history collection, focussing specifically on its collection of mounted bird specimens.
The artists will be looking at the collection in relation to historic and contemporary bird populations in the local area and will collaborate with scientists/researchers. Based upon this research, and working with various groups from the local area, they will produce a collaborative publication and a permanent artwork for the museum.
Alongside the commission will be a Young Curator’s Programme, to develop curatorial skills and experience and enable a group of young curators from the local area to produce a project with a similar focus.
‘Surroundings’ is produced by the Humber Museums Partnership (HMP), Hull, East Riding and North Lincolnshire in partnership with Invisible Dust. Launched in 2017 – the year of Hull City of Culture – the programme includes international public art commissions with an environmental theme, a young curator’s project, residencies and exhibitions. Each year has a different but interrelating theme – Food, Migration and Biodiversity and Landscape respectively. It is funded by Arts Council England through Ambitions for Excellence and Wellcome Trust Sustaining Excellence.
