Sonica Curated Tour with Tiffany Boyle, Curator, Writer & Researcher

An afternoon exploring the works of Manuel Rocha Iturbide, the playful Zzzzzzz and The Extended Tension, Heather Lander’s Nearer Future with live music from sonic artist, Robert Bentall and Quentin Euverte’s Buzz Aldrin Syndrome.

Tiffany Boyle is a Glasgow-based curator, researcher and writer. Together with Jessica Carden, she founded the curatorial project Mother Tongue. Since 2009, they have collaboratively produced exhibitions, film programmes, discursive events, essays and publications, working with galleries, museums, archives, and festivals. Mother Tongue’s practice in exhibition-making intersects with research – including post-colonialism, language, translation, heritage, race, indigenousness, migration, and movement. Recent recipients of a Paul Mellon Centre Research Support grant to undertake archive and collection research into the presence and exhibition histories of artists of colour in Scotland towards a future ‘AfroScots’ exhibition project.

Her doctoral thesis, based in the Department of Art History at Birkbeck College, is an analysis of the visual representation of the gymnastic body, using material across the visual arts, museum objects, lens-based media, and popular culture. She is a board member of the Wellcome Trust-funded ‘Body Language’ project, led the Centre for Research Collections at the University of Edinburgh, bringing together three unique archives, exploring dance, movement, physical education and sport (Scottish Gymnastics, Margaret Morris International, and the Dunfermline Women’s College for Physical Education).

She lectures part-time at Glasgow School of Art, and co-convenes the Invisible Knowledge initiative at the CCA Glasgow (a meeting group for independent, PhD and early-career researchers in the arts, acting as a platform to give visibility and translate the groups’ work to new, public audiences). Supported by the British Council Scotland, Mother Tongue is part of the organisational cohort on the Tilting Axis Caribbean Curatorial Fellowship, a one-year opportunity for a Caribbean-based practitioner to undertake across the region and in Scotland designed in collaboration with the CCA Glasgow, David Dale Galler, Hospitalfield and regional partners.

Entry Requirements: Limited capacity, advanced booking required.
