With the support of Making Ways, the Spring/Summer term will also feature a trio of Curatorial Insights sessions. As an ongoing commitment to organisational transparency and the creation of inclusive spaces for shared learning throughout our public programme the Curatorial Insights sessions will profile curatorial thinking, attempting to offer an urgent demystification of the role and capacity of curators within the broader arts ecology.
Session two will feature the work and experience of Laura Clarke, Curator at S1 Artspace, alongside a guest curator (tbc).
Laura Clarke is Curator at S1 Artspace, Sheffield. She is interested the ways in which organisations can provide supportive infrastructures for artists’ practices outside of the exhibition format, how long-term or collaborative projects can be sustained and how to make visible the affective and social labour of artists and art workers. She was previously Assistant Curator at Hayward Gallery, the Barbican Centre and Nottingham Contemporary. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2012 with an MA in Curating Contemporary Art, having originally studied Fine Art at Nottingham Trent (2005-2008).
