V&A appoints digital artist in residence

The Victoria & Albert Museum has appointed its first ever digital artist in residence.

Christian Kerrigan will be based at the V&A’s Sackler Centre until June, creating new pieces for his ongoing body of work, The 200 Year Continuum, which he began in 2007.

Kerrigan will work with the V&A’s collection and its research and conservation departments, and will make use of the new digital media studios in the Sackler Centre. He will hold open studios and host public events alongside the V&A’s ongoing digital exhibition, Decode: Digital Design Sensations.

Kerrigan will also be exploring the V&A’s digital archives, focusing on the prints and drawings collection. He is planning to explore mythical landscapes in Japanese prints to create new works.
