Curatorial development in Scotland

Curating Europes’ Futures

Rael Artel and Maria Hlavajova

24.03.2015, 18:00 - 20:00 - CCA Clubroom

The event focuses on two distinct, individual presentations:
Thinking Out Loud: Practices of Art in the Era of the Disenchanted (Maria Hlavajova)
and Is This The Museum We Wanted? (Rael Artel) in order to open up dialogues around curatorial practice in relation to institutional hierarchies. By examining these in line with shifting artistic practices the aim is to project or present new ways of considering the future.

To watch recordings of both presentations please see Variant

Led by the practitioner-research networks Variant and Mother Tongue, Framework was a co-organiser of a series of discussions taking place throughout 2014 under the title ‘Curating Europes’ Futures’. This series also brought together the Creative Futures Institute of the University of the West of Scotland,  Research School of The Glasgow School of Art and was hosted by CCA, Glasgow.

Curating Europes’ Futures is a collaboratively-organised series that explores contemporary curatorial and artistic practices which have critically addressed themselves to the processes of socio-economic restructuring, identity politics, gender dynamics and cultural policies within ‘post-bloc’ Europe. These discussions are free, open to the public, aimed principally at artists, researchers, curators and those with an active interest in the changing contexts of interdisciplinary, experimental and investigative curatorial and artistic practices.
