I am taking part in the second year of Curatorial Studio, devised by Kirsteen MacDonald & supported by SCAN.
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. Participants work together to engage with relevant theory, test ideas and gain new skills to develop their individual practices and interactions with audiences. The participants are selected through an open call process.
Curatorial Studio 2017 began this month as one of group of eight participants, Peter Amoore, Yvonne Billimore, Ben Callaghan, Camila Crosta, Nikki Kane, John McDougall & Anastasia Philimonos who work in varied contexts across Scotland from Aberdeenshire to Edinburgh. During five intensive sessions we will explore the identity of the contemporary curator, the possibilities and limitations of the exhibition, and relationships between writing and curating.
