Current Artist

The Bell Museum Resident Artist Research Project offers artists an exclusive opportunity to engage with University researchers and scientific collections while exploring the application of art as a medium for interpreting science in the public realm.



Andy DuCett’s work surveys the various ways we humans subjectively interpret and internalize events, objects and places in a world that is becoming ever more connected. DuCett’s recent artistic pursuits have joined his established interests in objects, collecting, and shared cultural experiences with concepts of place, memory, taxonomy, and audience participation to investigate why we remember some life experiences more vividly than others.

With his RARP artist residency, DuCett expresses a desire to “play” with traditional ideas of the museum-going experience, challenging the audience to question their own expectations for what objects are collected and how they are displayed. Visit Andy DuCett online
