Collaboration & Curating
Join SCAN during Edinburgh Art Festival 2014 for an informal conversation and networking event exploring different aspects of collaboration within curatorial practice. SCAN will invite three guests to present and critique their own approaches to working collaboratively then host an informal discussion with those in attendance. Speakers will include curators and artists who work within a variety of collaborative curatorial situations. Guests now include Stacy Boldrick (curator of Research and Interpretation at The Fruitmarket Gallery) and Mother Tongue, a research-led curatorial project formed by Tiffany Boyle and Jessica Carden, other speakers tbc.

This event is geared towards anyone interested in curatorial practice, whether you are a curator, artist, programmer, producer, writer or a practitioner from another field keen to explore the subject.

This event is inspired by ‘Where do I end and you begin’ a major international exhibition of contemporary art selected by five curators from Commonwealth countries, commissioned by EAF in partnership with the City Art Centre as part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.

Walking Tour
Join SCAN for an informal wander round a selection of near by galleries. Enjoy an opportunity to see the shows and hear from the curators/programmers in company of other artists and curators.
