Curating in the 21 st Century: Summer School with Morgan Quaintance

June 19, 2018 – 8:44 pm |

Applications are open / Deadline is June 25.

10-13 July, 2018

In addition to the curator’s traditional duties of administration, artist liaison, exhibition design, and fundraising, what other tools can be used to fulfill the essential curatorial function of presenting, interpreting, and disseminating contemporary art and ideas for a given public? This year’s Summer School, led by Morgan Quaintance – including key invited speakers, such as The White Pube (Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad) – will consider the possibilities offered by filmmaking, broadcasting and criticism. With an emphasis on the transference of practical skills and theoretical knowledge, this summer school is also aimed at artists and other cultural producers as participants will be given a basic introduction to each field designed to encourage further exploration beyond the course.

Morgan Quaintance is a London-based writer, musician, broadcaster and curator. Born in South London, he is a regular contributor to Art Monthly, and has written for The Guardian, The Wire, Art Review, Frieze, Rhizome.org, and a number of curatorial sites and blogs. He is a contributing editor for E-Flux’s online publishing portal Art Agenda, is a founding member of the curatorial collective DAM PROJECTS, and was the 2015/16 curatorial fellow at Cubitt Gallery, London. As a presenter he has worked with BBC radio and television, Channel Four, Artfund, the Royal Opera House, National Theatre and Roundhouse, and is also the producer of Studio Visit, a monthly hour-long interviews-based programme, broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM, featuring international contemporary artists as guests.

Course requirements
Participants should come with something they would like to curate (i.e. formally present, interpret and disseminate to a given public). It can be anything from an idea, socio-cultural or political issue, to a survey of artists or an artistic tendency. What is important is that each participant will have something to test out in the filmmaking, broadcasting and criticism sessions.

Application procedure
This programme is open to curators and artists.
Selection will be based on submission of a curatorial /artist statement, a short bio, an up to date CV and 4-5 images where appropriate.
Please note this four day course has a limit on places and is competitive.

Cost – €200
