What's Love Got To Do With It?

8 - 12 January 2018
Reid Gallery

What's Love Got To Do With It? is a project exploring collaboration, exhaustion and love in the field of artistic practice.

This is the first part of a three-week residency in the Reid Gallery focusing on curating.
Curatorial Studio in Residence runs 15 - 26 January. 

As the world of work drives us to want to do more, to live according to deadlines, to be late, to be exhausted, what does it mean for creative practice? How can we collaborate if each individual is already exhausted? What affects and shapes the conditions for curatorial research? What does love have to do with it?

These questions will guide the participating group's research during two workshops; firstly, in January at The Glasgow School of Art, and secondly, in March at the School of Art and Design Marseille-Méditerranée. Using theoretical texts, artists' works, non-linguistic practices, fringe material and experimental processes they plan to learn, share and adapt approaches to collaboration and propositions for a public programme for Art-Cade Gallery, Marseille, during the Printemps de l'Art Contemporain Festival (PAC) in May 2018.

Acting as a curatorial studio or rehearsal space; part public, part private; the Reid Gallery will open to the public at lunchtimes and for specific events throughout the week.
