Curating Connections: Approaches to Group Exhibitions
29 October 2010

Held in collaboration with Emerge and Acme Studios, and run by Nick Kaplony (Artquest, Pump House Gallery) this event addressed practical and conceptual approaches to curating.

The event was an opportunity for participants to meet Brent-based artists at the new purpose-built Acme studios before the workshop, and bring their own artwork to install a one night only exhibition at Intervention Gallery.

Using a workshop-style 'hands on' approach to the challenges and opportunities of curating a group exhibition from diverse artistic styles and practices, the event was run from an artist-led point of view and considered the roles and group dynamics involved in proposing and developing a group exhibition.

Nick Kaplony, artist, programme manager at Artquest, and curator at Pump House Gallery, led a similar event 'I'm in a group show, but we've nothing in common!' the previous year. A development of that workshop, Curating Connections offered more practical tips to curating as well as a stunning and unconventional venue in which to host the one night show.
