Curating Connections: Approaches to Group Exhibitions
29 October 2010
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.
