Art in the Airport: The Production of Public Art at Oslo Airport T2.
The Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London in partnership with Oslo Lufthavn AS has been awarded an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award on “Art in the Airport: The Production of Public Art at Oslo Airport T2”.
Applications are invited for this studentship that will start in October 2012.
The central focus of the proposed project is on the process of curatorship and installation of large scale public art in a new large building project – the new terminal (T2) at Oslo Airport. This studentship will aim to analyse key developments in current practices of curatorship, the production of public art and the development of airport space giving particular emphasis to the role of public art in the construction of place from the perspective of architects, curators and the artists themselves.
The academic supervisor for this project is Professor Tim Cresswell. Claire Doherty of the art production organization, Situations, will act on behalf of Oslo Airport as co-supervisor. Anne Beate Hovind of Oslo Lufthavn AS will act as an on-site mentor.
The awards pay fees and an annual maintenance grant for three years. The closing date is 4pm Friday 6 July, 2012. Interviews will be held in mid July.
