Since October 2013, the Futurators* have been meeting monthly at aspex to discuss theories surrounding contemporary art and curation. With the support of artist coaches Abi Gilchrist and Letty Clarke the group have developed their interests and from this are curating an exhibition, residency and publication at aspex this summer.
From 6 August to 31 August, the Futurators exhibition will take place alongside a 3-day residency between artist Suki Chan and psychologist Skaiste Linceviciute.
The exhibition is both an archive and response to the discussions that took place over the past 10 months. The timeline tracks their process and opens up the resources to the audience for you to continue their conversations.
The Futurators have produced a publication with their individual responses to one or more of the resources in this exhibition.
Following a growing interest in both art and psychology, in particular the psychology of visual representation, the Futurators have commissioned artist Suki Chan and psychologist Skaiste Linceviciute to work in residence over the course of the exhibition to create new work in response to their resources.
You will find Suki and Skaiste working in the café on the following dates:
Wednesday 13th August
Saturday 23rd August
Monday 25th August
The Futurators are hosting a celebration event on Monday 25 August, 2-4pm, please come along to talk to the group about their project, and see the results of the residency with Suki Chan and Skaiste Linceviciute.
*The Futurators is aspex's young curators programme, which began in 2010. This will be the third Futurators project and this year has been supported by the British Council Youth in Action programme.
