Thinking Critically About Society: Perspectives from the Arts and Humanities is a day long workshop to take place on Thursday 5th May 2016 at the University of York.
Thinking Critically aims to create a space where postgraduate researchers can share their research in a friendly environment and discuss how arts and humanities researchers can make an impact on the world around them through critical research.
I shall be presenting a paper titled 'Disrupting status: inclusive curatorship and its political potential' during the panel 'Thinking Critically about Culture'.
The timetable for the event is now available. Book your free tickets here.
Very exciting day zining at Tate Collectives Art Gym! I had the pleasure of putting together the final zine so watch this space as I'll be posting it shortly.
Improve your art rate this spring! Tate Collective Liverpool and Turner Prize winnersAssemble present Art Gym; a three week programme of free, drop-in activities held within a new and specially designed space at Tate Liverpool
Inspired by a traditional gym, Art Gym offers visitors of all ages and abilities the chance to make a personal training programme, designed to learn new creative skills or develop existing ones. Instead of kettlebells and treadmills, visitors can enjoy a wide range of classes, lectures, workshops and art stations teaching everything from traditional craft work to digital art production. Tate Collective and our gallery’s Visitor Assistant Team will act as Art Gym instructors, on hand to help you plan your creative workout. Following Assemble’s Turner Prize success Tate Collective have invited the art, architecture and design collective to collaborate and co-design the gym-like environment. This multi-purpose space forms the heart of Art Gym and is custom built to host classes, workshops and lectures.
The University of Leeds, Centre for Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage will be taking up temporary residence in the Art Gym’s immersive boxing ring as part Tate Collective Liverpool’s take over of the gallery. You are invited to drop in, join us and make a page for the Zine.
Art Galleries have done a lot in the past decades to address exclusion but in our workshop we will focus on the lived and experiential dimension of this desire. The Zine will explore this question from lots of different angles and perspectives asking how does it feel when you are included?
