Tim Ridlen: The Artist’s PhD Field Library

• Tim Ridlen (UC San Diego): $2,000.00 for The Artist’s PhD Field Library

Initiated by Helga Just Christofferson and Tim Ridlen, The Artist PhD Field Library is a library of published material on (and relating to) the subject of the artist PhD implemented at various institutions of higher education. The UCIRA Planning Grant will allow for the further development of the cooperation between the library at University of California San Diego and the CCS Library at Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. The grant will further make it possible to approach the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a potential third partner in the project. Following this initial planning of the project is the overall goal to implement The Artist PhD Field Library in these three partner institutions and establish an online platform for the project and to undertake further research of additional branches of the library. The three branches of the library will function as the physical collection of the virtual online bibliography.
