RECLAIMING THE CURATORIAL 2017
Tue, 11 Apr 2017, 10:00 – Fri, 14 Apr 2017, 18:00 BST
Following the 2015 edition, Reclaiming the Curatorial returns as an intensive, practical, four-day course for individuals interested in developing self-organised platforms for curating and presenting contemporary visual art practice. Based at Cubitt Gallery and Studios, a leading artist-led organisation renowned for its Curatorial Fellowship, the spring school will consist of workshops and seminars led by invited artists & curators, alongside visits to some of London’s inspiring peer-led and self-initiated projects.
In the past ten years curating courses have tended to focus on institutional contexts, whilst a rich activity of curatorial practices led by artists and creative practitioners has been producing exhibitions, setting up spaces, and experimenting with new collaborative working methods. The creative arts are also facing significant financial challenges, and urgently need new models for producing and sharing contemporary practice.
The course is designed for artists, emerging curators, students /recent graduates and other creative professionals interested in developing self initiated, peer-led and alternative forms of curating practice. Themes will include research, commissioning, production and dissemination, developing skills and self-organised practice.
Reclaiming the Curatorial is organised and run by Jenny Richards, co-founder of the collaborative project Manual Labours (with Sophie Hope) and curator, Marabouparken Konsthall, Sweden with Cubitt's Gallery Projects and Development Manager, Fabio Altamura. Contributors include: Cubitt member Dereck Harris; artists Ghislaine Leung, Lucy Parker, Ross Jardine & Matthew de Kersaint; curators Helen Nisbet, Irene Revell and Louise Shelley, as well as visits to The Showroom and MayDay Rooms.
