Artists in Residence

In Trinity Term, the College invites a professional artist to be our Artist-in-Residence. They are always keen to interact with the students, and at the end of term they display the work they have developed here.

Lara Smithson

This Trinity Term, we welcome Lara Smithson as our Artist-in-Residence. Lara works across a variety of media, spanning drawing, costume, video, installation and sculpture. In 2021-2 she was a Bridget Riley Fellow at the British School at Rome. The work she is undertaking during the residency is looking into ‘the juxtaposition of the body as sacrosanct, yet also as something to be torn apart, simulated, cloned for the sake of devotion and science’, and looks to contrast historical and traditional knowledge with the modern scientific understanding of the human body via the medium of art.
