Part of ‘Doing the Work’, an online CPD workshop series for curators co-produced by the Contemporary Art Society and the Decolonising Arts Institute (University of the Arts London). Read more.
Open to CAS Museum Members and professionals.
In this workshop we will consider the role of artist residencies and interventionist projects staged by independent curators and organisations. Questions for discussion might include:
What short and long-term impact can interventions by artists and external curators have on problematic but long-standing institutional practices, orthodoxies, and attitudes? How can interventionist voices/practices be embedded into museum and gallery work? How can relationships with artists and external curators be meaningfully and ethically sustained after interventionist projects end?
This workshop will begin with case studies from Dr. Sylvia Theuri (artist/curator/educator/researcher) and Priyesh Mistry (Associate Curator Modern and Contemporary, National Gallery), moderated by Fatoş Üstek (independent curator and writer). Click here for participant biographies.
