Curatorial Studio in Residence

15-26 January 2018
Reid Gallery

Curatorial Studio is a unique peer-learning and development programme that supports curators based in Scotland in the early stages of their career. Wtih a national scope and international outlook, the programme encourages participants to reflect critically on their own work and develop new approaches. They work together to test ideas and gain new skills to develop their individual practices and interactions with audiences. 

This is the second part of a three-week residency in the Reid Gallery focusing on curating. What's Love Got To Do With It? runs 8 - 12 January. 

At the Reid Gallery, Curatorial Studio will be in residence for two weeks, developing ideas, working on a forthcoming publication about peer-learning techniques and sharing their interests in a series of events and workshops. The gallery will be open every weekday between 1-2pm, when there will be a chance to take part in public events or to see and hear what Curatorial Studio are doing on an informal basis.

Curatorial Studio launched in 2016 with a group of 15 early-career curators, meeting for group workshops, discussions and public events. In 2017, the project welcomed eight new participants who work in varied contexts across Scotland, from Aberdeenshire to Edinburgh. Curatorial Studio has explored the identity of the contemporary curator, the possibilities and limitations of the exhibition, and relationships between writing and curating. 

Curatorial Studio in Residence at the Reid Gallery will be exploring writing strategies with novelist Nicola White, learning about the Visual Arts Map of Scotland and sharing wider ideas about how to build and sustain networks.

Curatorial Studio is delivered by Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN) with curator Kirsteen Macdonald and is supported by Creative Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art.
