Invisible Dust

An Urgent Enquiry residency commissioning opportunity will include collaboration with UK commissioning agency Invisible Dust, who will select one of the artists for an additional UK based residency in 2020. This international residency will expand upon specific themes relating to An Urgent Enquiry and their Surroundings Commissioning Programme. This is a three year commissioning programme with international artists on environmental themes taking place with the Humber Museums Partnership with the three local authorities of Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.  Invisible Dust will offer an international exchange for one of the selected artists to develop an iteration of their commission in the UK as part of the final year of Invisible Dust’s Surroundings Programme. Providing an opportunity to develop a closer connection between the east coast of Ireland and the east coast of Yorkshire, the commission will be realised in the East Riding of Yorkshire in April 2020 at one of their museums, with time spent in the region in February / March 2020 to develop
the project.


Established in 2009 by Alice Sharp, Invisible Dust is a UK based commissioning organisation that works with leading artists and scientists to produce new and exciting artworks exploring our environment that spark local and national conversations around pressing environmental concerns. In 2018 Invisible Dust organised Under Her Eye with author Margaret Atwood and Paris Climate Agreement 2015 leader Christiana Figueres in London. Invisible Dust has worked with artists such as Elizabeth Price, Tacita Dean, Dryden Goodwin, Mariele Nuedecker and Jeremy Deller.
