Curatorial Studio - 2016 Programme

The international public programme of Curatorial Studio continues with talks at CCA Glasgow by curators Nikolett Erőss and Mihnea Mircan, both making their first visits to Scotland. These events are free, but ticketed.

Sat 19 March at 4pm, Nikolett Erőss

Erőss introduces OFF Biennale in Budapest within the context of a wider discussion about art, curating, politics, festivals and the geography of self-organisation with Sarah McCrory (Glasgow International) and Anna McLauchlan (University of Leeds). OFF Biennale is a civic initiative that began in 2015 led by a network of self-organisation in response to political and subsequent legislative changes in Hungary since 2012 that have caused dramatic changes to the curatorial leadership of Budapest’s art institutions. 

Sat 23 April at 4.30pm, Mihnea Mircan

Mircan presents a screening programme of material related to his recent curatorial work that explores anachronistic or allegorical figures which erode distinctions between the mythological and the rational, the ‘primitive’ and the ‘scientific’, ‘the contemporary’ and that which precedes it. Mircan was the artistic director of Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp between 2011-15 and has curated exhibitions at institutions including the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest; Museion, Bolzano; Stroom, Den Haag; Spinnerei, Leipzig; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Fondation Ricard, Paris; Project Art Center, Dublin; and the Venice Biennale, as curator of the Romanian Pavilion in 2007.

Curatorial Studio is a supportive peer-learning group and mentoring project for emerging curators from across Scotland, organised by Kirsteen Macdonald (Framework / The Glasgow School of Art) in collaboration with SCAN, CCA Glasgow and the MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme; a partnership between The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, and supported by the Student Association at GSA and The Common Guild.
