Meeting with Curators: Presentation and Networking event

 

Collaborations between academics and those working in contemporary arts fields are by no means new. They would also appear to be increasingly sought after by both sectors. On the one hand, the research community seems progressively interested in finding opportunities to connect with the contemporary arts landscape. This is at least in part due to the growth of agendas such as ‘impact’ and public engagement, as well as there being more institutional support for knowledge exchange activities.

At the same time, many contemporary arts organisations, regardless of scale or location, are exploring how they might better work with Higher Education to access research and academic input into exhibition and education programmes, as well as related areas such as publishing, archives and social media.

This event will present a range of perspectives from curators working in diverse contemporary arts contexts who are currently working with academia now or who are planning to do so in future. There will also be a short co-presented case-study from several of those involved in the ongoing Her Noise project and archive. This most recently manifested in the Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic three day programme at Tate this May. The presentations will be followed by a gallery tour and networking drinks.

Presenters will include: Anna Gritz (ICA), Alfredo Cramerotti (Director, MOSTYN), Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield), Prof Cathryn Lane (CRISAP, LCC) and Madeleine Keep (Tate Britain).
