cu•rate is a group exhibition that aims to explore contemporary curatorial practice through interdisciplinary collaborations between artist and curator.
cu•rate attempts to open up a new and undiscovered discourse in curating; to define what curating is (or isn’t) today, through the research and display of varied practitioners. The exhibition will feature a range of new commissions, site-specific installations and unseen archive film footage.
cu•rate will be collaborating with moving image and performance artist Dave Charlesworth, who will present a series of films that explore fragmented personal histories. Recent graduate Holly Hendry will be assembling a site-specific installation that explores the space between construction and collapse. Conceptual artist, Cesare Pietroiusti will present a major series of specially commissioned drawings that invite the visitor to become a participant; whilst visual photographer and installation artist James Thurgood will be re-imagining past work, which explores the viewer’s direct relationship with text, image and colour.
cu•rate is co-curated by Phoebe V. Bradford, Natalie Craven & Abigail Shamah of MA Curating the Contemporary at London Metropolitan University in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery.
