Henry Moore Institute internships awarded 2010/11
This year the following internships have been awarded for projects undertaken by four MA students from Leeds University's School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies.
Public Sculpture in Leeds
Roslyn Stanwick, studying for an MA in History of Art, collated information on a work of public sculpture in Leeds. Using the HMI archive as a starting point, the project explored many of Leeds' libraries and landmarks.
Sculpture and Comic Art
Rachel Cunningham Clark (MA Arts & Culture) researched the relationship between sculpture and comic, cartoon, caricature and animation art. This project is fed into a forthcoming workshop, and a wider academic conference, in 2011.
Harriet Allen (MA History of Art) focused on a spring 2011 exhibition which highlights the ways in which the life of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915) entered mainstream culture. The highly influential French-born sculptor's identity has since become mythologised through the publication of the biographical novel Savage Messiah in 1930.
Helen Chadwick Archive
Liz Stainforth (MA Museum & Gallery Studies) worked with the archive, researching and cataloguing the various films, documentaries and audio records about the life and work of artist Helen Chadwick.
