Artist-in-Residence Open Studio
Carol Adlam is an award-winning author and illustrator specializing in graphic novels and reportage illustration. Her work focuses on narrative and sequential art, exploring the crossovers between illustration, fine art, and storytelling. From May 2016 to February 2017 Carol will be the Museums first Artist-in-Residence, undertaking a reportage illustration project called The Thinking Room. Carol will also run a series of open studios and workshops on graphic novels and visual storytelling, inspired by the museum’s rich collections.
Carol will be running open studios to show her initial work on the University of Nottingham Museum’s collection for her reportage illustration project, The Thinking Room. Visitors will have the opportunity to take part by drawing or responding in writing to a selection of artefacts from the collection. Her open studio in September will be focusing particularly on the ‘A Greek in Egypt’ exhibition.
