What Being Artists Has Taught Us About Being Curators
With Andy Field & Deborah Pearson (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Vancouver Art Gallery
750 Hornby Street
In this workshop participants will work together to create their own imaginary performance festivals for various gallery spaces throughout Vancouver. To do so, the group will begin by looking at the space like artists, thinking in ways that are nimble, resourceful and imaginative; that begin not with ownership or occupation, but with collaboration and ephemerality. Participants will think about the relationship between art-making and art curation, and how one might inform the other. Led by Andy Field and Deborah Pearson, co-directors of Forest Fringe, participants will learn about recent UK practices including exciting curatorial projects created in museums, pubs and even forests.
