Alex Julyan has been appointed as the next artist to take up the Artquest research residency at the Horniman.

During her residency, Alex will create a public conversation between musical instruments in the collection and the musical experiences of visitors.

London-based Alex’s work focuses on the ways we encounter the everyday, both collectively and individually, “constructed from the overlooked, ephemeral and discarded stuff of our lives”. Her work ranges from objects and drawings, to films and live events, whether created independently or through collaborations, most recently with the Wellcome Trust.

The residency will take place between October to December 2017, and Alex will receive:

  • An award of £3,000 to engage with the work and collections of the Horniman
  • An additional award of £850 towards a public facing event, showcasing the thinking and research undertaken during the residency
  • Privileged access to Horniman musical instrument collection’s objects and curators

We’re looking forward to seeing what Alex will create during the residency.
