Bristol MA graduate Jon Crabb wins prestigious internship at Tate Britain.
Jon Crabb, who graduated with a Distinction in the MA in History of Art in 2011, has won a competitive nine-month placement in the Research Department at Tate Britain. He is working on a new project called Lost Art, which highlights important works of modern and contemporary art that no longer exist, whether through war, theft, negligence or natural catastrophe. Lost Art also explores loss as a conceptual artistic practice, and how it has been understood and experienced over the last century from the perspectives of artists, collectors, museums and the public. The research will result in an interactive website designed as a virtual warehouse, allowing visitors to wonder round and explore the story behind different items.
The project is headed by Jennifer Mundy (Head of Collection Research, Tate) working with Jane Burton (Head of Content and Creative Director, Tate Media) and the production agency ISO. Lost Art is supported by Channel 4 and The Arts and Humanities Research Council.
