Curatorial Studio Seed Fund Recipients 2019-20

From a group of teenage girls in Glasgow’s Govanhill, to an artist-led project in an Aberdeen flat, SCAN’s Curatorial Seed funding will support contemporary art in communities across Scotland. Four early career curators from Oban, Glasgow and Aberdeen will receive awards of £250 each and the projects are as follows:

Camilla Crosta from Glasgow will develop a collaborative art project that will work with a group of teenage girls in Govanhill and the artists of Rumpus Room. They will design and publish their own fanzine inspired by their experience of public space and the process of urban transformation.

Naoko Mabon will use her funding to contribute to a curatorial research trip from her new home in Oban to the Isle of Mull and the Isle of Skye to further develop her work on site specific and collaborative projects.

Kirsty Russell from Aberdeen will create a publication with her home-based curatorial project Underpinning.

Alison Scott will travel from Glasgow to London for the Writing/Performance conference at the Royal College of Art.

Led by SCAN and Kirsteen Macdonald, Curatorial Studio is a unique peer-learning and development programme that supports curators based in Scotland in the early stages of their career. With a national scope and international outlook, the programme encourages participants to reflect critically on their own work and develop new approaches.
