Event info


Professor Carol Tulloch

Curating and writing are key thinking and making practices for me.
I rely on their interdependence.
They contribute to my sense of self.
Objects and the right to be are the drivers.
How did I get here?

Race, Rights and Sovereignty series was established in 2016 as a partnership between The Art School: GSA's Students' Association (GSASA) and GSA Exhibitions. The programme has been developed in order to create opportunities, and forums, to engage with and unpack ideas and issues related to race, rights & sovereignty; particularly in the contexts of creative practice. The series aims to celebrate, challenge, inform and inspire the next generation of artists, designers and architects, empowering them to have a creative voice.
