13:30 on 21 March 2015
17, Belmont Street
This second event in the SCAN series will explore alternative strategies for curating and organising in contemporary art from the perspective of feminist praxis.
13.30 – 15.00
Aberdeen based artist Merlyn Riggs will turn the space into a tearoom, playing host to Adele Patrick, artist and lifelong creative development manager at Glasgow Women’s Library , and Dunja KuKovec from Ljubljana, prolific curator and writer within the feminist collective Red Min(e)d. Both speakers will share their significant experiences of organising support networks and alternative spaces for artists and activist beyond mainstream institutional contexts. Presentations will be related to the specific context in the Northeast through questions and discussion facilitated by artist and activist Sinéad O Donnell Dunn, from Scottish Artist Union.
15.00 – 16.00
Following on from the presentations and discussion Merlyn Riggs will serve afternoon tea giving guests, artists, curators and activists based in the city a chance to further explore issues around the tables in a more informal setting.
The event is free and open to all interested in the contemporary art context in the Northeast.
Booking for afternoon tea is essential as space is limited for catering purposes. Please click through to the booking page above.
This event is programmed in partnership with SCAN, Grays School of Art (IDEAS Institute, Robert Gordon University) and the Creative Learning team with support from Aberdeen City Council and Creative Scotland.
