About The Residents

LADA has curated four week-long artist’s residencies in the Wellcome Collection’s wonderful Reading Room

Each artist will work with a specific theme within the Reading Room, exploring the materials and resources held in the collection in relation to their own practice and research, and leading to public ‘performances’ of their findings and conversations with invited experts. 

The Residents are Selina Thompson on Food, Joshua Sofaer on Face, Stacy Makishi on Faith, and Tim Bromage on Alchemy.
