With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers of all different disciplines, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. This board shows photos of residents' work - finished and in progress - and will give you an insight into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.

Exhibition Road Drawing Resident: Liam O’Connor, April 2014 – April 2015
V&A Ceramic Resident, Matt Smith took this beautiful photo in warehouses of industrial plaster molds at Stoke-on-Trent. The former Spode factory site houses a large quantity of these molds which were formerly used in mass manufacturing and are now redundant. More interesting story about this place and photos can found in below link.
"No Black, No Dogs, No Irish". The latest redisplay of the cases outside the ceramic studio(level 6) is a collection of ceramics portraying black people and dogs, which is an ugly example of historic discrimination. Through this object, our ceramic resident artist, Matt shows that what and who is considered important and what is socially acceptable alters as society changes.
