The Art Fund Curatorial Practice Workshop

The Art Fund Curatorial Practice Workshop: Exploring different positions in curating and running art institutions.

ICA Studio, The Mall, London, SW1Y 5AH
24 September, 13:00 - 17:30

15 bursary places available

As part of fig-2, the Art Fund Curatorial Practice Workshop, led by Fatos Ustek, will bring together a range of arts and museum professionals to discuss the future of curating and public institutions.

The workshop will adopt a unique relationship to the fig-2 exhibition, in which the artwork itself will help to activate the discussion. As addressed at a previous fig-2 event entitled Politics of Display (16th April), museums import historical consciousness and contribute to the shaping of personal identity. Thus museums have a duty to transform monologue into conversation. This curatorial workshop will build on the recent tendencies within the Fig-2 programme to develop a conversational relationship between the artist, the art work, the curator, the institutions and the public, exploring the potential of art as a tool for provocation of movement and transformation, while investigating the modes of ‘social imaginary’ produced by the museums and galleries nationwide.

Applications are open to all museum and gallery professionals who work with public collections.
