Curatorial Studio returns for 2019
SCAN is delighted to announce two events with Grant Watson, co-curator of the bauhaus imaginista project currently showing at HKW in Berlin, which explores the potential and international reach of the famous art and design school. These events mark the return of Curatorial Studio, our ongoing project about, for, and by, contemporary art curators devised by Kirsteen Macdonald and developed by SCAN and partners across Scotland.
This year Curatorial Studio will invite key international curators to Scotland to hold small focused workshops and to give associated public talks on their work in a range of host venues across the country.The workshop programme will be focused on supporting early career curators by exploring current projects, working practices and the free exchange of ideas. All our activities are free and places for each workshop will be allocated by SCAN after an open call. Our talks programme will draw on wider themes, to explore how curatorial work can tell new stories about the world, for the widest of audiences.
Curatorial Studio 2019 will highlight key international voices concerned with identity and representation, the impacts of transcultural exchange, and the possibilities for curatorial work to challenge dominant narratives.
The first event in the series will be a workshop for early career and freelance curators with Grant Watson, exploring the question – why can’t life be the material for a work of art? This event is free and open to applications. The deadline to apply is 5pm on May 5th and full details can be found via the link below.
