FROM KEEPER TO MAKER: BRITISH CURATORIAL PRACTICES

Share

Eligibility:

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR A SESSION IN THE AAH 2020 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

(Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 1-3 April 2020)

Scholarly research is giving growing importance to curatorial practices. Publications such as the Museum History Journal (8:1, 2015) have discussed how, since the mid-to-late 19th century, curators worldwide have adapted from the scholarly and administrative art expert archetype (George, 2015) to one that ‘possesses an authorial/artistic function’ (O’Neill, 2012), in which the ‘making’ takes centre stage (Acord, 2010). Have British curators followed the same evolution or are there distinctive characteristics that set British curators apart from their colleagues abroad? This panel aims to cover a gap in curatorial research by discussing the history of curators in Britain, reflecting on how they have engaged with their economic, political, and professional contexts since Victorian times (Black, 2000). It will analyse the role of professional associations such as the UK Museums Association (1889) as a forum for exchanging ideas and practice, the emergence of training programmes in the mid-20th century, the creation of the first HE curatorial course in the Royal College of Art (1992) and the potential professional challenges of a post-Brexit scenario.

We invite papers on the following possible topics:

  • distinctiveness of British curatorial practices
  • peculiarity of British curators’ training in different periods and its impact upon practice
  • isolation and connection in the relations with foreign artists, institutions, colleagues, critics, connoisseurs, private collectors, commercial art galleries and public powers
  • internationalism and Britishness in curatorial discourses
  • class and gender inclusion in the profession compared to other countries
  • the impact of curation on the art market and art education in the UK and abroad.

Submit a paper

  • Please email your paper proposals direct to the session convenors, using the Paper Proposal Form
  • You need to provide a title and abstract (250 words maximum) for a 25-minute paper (unless otherwise specified), your name and institutional affiliation (if any).
  • Please make sure the title is concise and reflects the contents of the paper because the title is what appears online, in social media and in the printed programme.
  • You should receive an acknowledgement receipt of your submission within two weeks from the session convenors.
  • Deadline for submissions: Monday 21 October 2019
Deadline: 
10/21/2019

The Engage Scotland Development Group (ESDG) operates as a voluntary steering group for the work of Engage in Scotland, influencing programming, supporting the Engage Scotland Coordinator’s role, representing the organisation and offering their experience and skills. 

Traditionally the ESDG has operated with three Area Reps who cover the very broad geographical areas of Glasgow and the West, Edinburgh and the East, and the Highlands and Islands. Area Reps are also members of the Engage Council. In addition to Area Reps the group has up to four voluntary or co-opted members. 

We currently have a vacancy for an Area Rep for Highlands and Islands/member of Engage Council.

This is an opportunity for an experienced visual arts/gallery education professional to be part of a lively group working to raise the profile of gallery education and visual arts Engagement in Scotland.

Current and previous members of the Development Group have enjoyed opportunities to further their own continuing professional development through helping to shape Engage Scotland projects such as the Celebrate ART project and advise on programming of training events and conferences, including this year’s Engage International Conference in Newcastle in November 2019. Group members value the opportunity to visit other gallery venues and to network and share with colleagues within the ESDG.

All travel expenses for attending meetings, including Council meetings in England, are met. We welcome applications from colleagues working in visual arts organisations/galleries and from freelancers and will be able to pay travel expenses and a small fee for freelancers to attend meetings.

  • Provide support for the Engage Scotland Coordinator — usually through regular phone and email contact.
  • Represent Engage and help with the planning of events.
  • Comment and respond to papers as required.
  • Attend Engage Council meetings which take place three times a year, usually in England. These meetings are an opportunity to discuss the organisation’s policies and programmes, as well as hear speakers on agreed topics that are relevant to the sector and gallery education practice.

The benefits of being an Area Rep include:

  • An opportunity to input into the work of Engage
  • Being part of a network of peers involved in gallery education in the UK
  • Attending conferences and events for Engage

The benefits of becoming a Council member include:

  • 20% discount on conferences and training seminars in the UK organised by Engage centrally
  • The opportunity to input into national gallery education policy and strategy
  • Being part of a network of key people involved in gallery education in the UK
  • Advice and guidance on accessing key organisations in the UK and other countries
  • The chance to network with colleagues and form partnerships locally and nationally

Current members of ESDG are:

  • Holly Rumble, Freelance, (Area Rep for Glasgow and the West)

Voluntary Members

DCAD hosts visit from Hong Kong business delegation

Share

Category:

Delaware College of Art and Design and community partner NextFab recently co-hosted a visit from representatives of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York.

HKETONY director Joanne Chu and deputy director Erica Lam met with DCAD President Jean Dahlgren, Dean Katy Ro, admissions director Jane B. Campbell, assistant admissions director Randle Reed and other administrators at the 600 N. Market St. campus building. Chu and Lam learned about the College’s programs, study body and community partnerships. They also discussed the state’s creative industries and DCAD’s role within those industries.

During the session, Chu noted that an institution to which students frequently apply for transfer after completing their associate of fine arts degrees at DCAD – Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga. – had opened a Hong Kong campus in 2010. Today, SCAD Hong Kong offers 14 programs of study.

The group then traveled via the DCAD van, which is wrapped in a student-designed collage of student artwork, to the NextFab location on Tatnall Street. DCAD has partnered with NextFab since 2017 to enable students to learn and create using the facility’s state-of-the-industry equipment, instruction and dedicated DCAD classroom space. First-year students in all majors, who are required to take DCAD’s “Three-Dimensional Design” foundation course, and second-year fine arts majors studying sculpture are among those benefiting from the innovative, high-tech art and design environment of NextFab.

While at the makerspace, the group met with marketing/sales director Eric Kaplan and discussed NextFab’s role in the DCAD curriculum. Participants also toured the facility and learned about the site’s broader place within Wilmington’s Creative District and business environment.

HKETONY’s stops at DCAD and NextFab occurred in conjunction with Hong Kong Commissioner to the United States Eddie Mak’s first duty visit to the First State. His trip included a call on Gov. John Carney and Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki. It also included meetings with other key Delaware leaders and organizations. All of the activities were intended to explore potential collaborations between entities in Delaware and Hong Kong.
