Assignment under ‘Expanding Exhibitions: Innovative Approaches to Curating’- with Lauren Reid
What kind of curator do you want to be?
What form, archive or exhibition typifies this?
“I would like to create a retrospective solo show of my own work and produce a catalogue or book to accompany a singular work or works of mine held collectively. The format of the book itself as hardcopies and artistically formatted literature will be a form of curating in its own right.
Captivating audiences online through an exhibition which is presented in a live feed with performance/live art etc is something that I am interested in and the ways in which this can be archived online (like Antony Gormley’s One & Other archived in the British Museum Library online or Tate Liverpool’s A Living Museum 2053).
The idea of curating art discussions i.e artist talks or lessons is something that I would like to look into, similar to the ways that the Whitworth Art Gallery archives its artist talks on sound cloud or the ways that Birmingham Open Media feed in live Skype talks with artists from abroad who cannot be physically present to deliver talks on site (runs very similarly to the way Node Centre for Curatorial Studies operates or Brum Radio – Live!)
Concerning those who cannot physically be able to leave their homes to attend an art exhibition for whatever reason is preventing them to do so. It interests me to be able to explore the virtual ways in which accessing the exhibition can be done technologically to reach a wider audience of people too.”
