David McLeavy & Alexandra Warder
Wednesday 12 June, 6 – 8pm
Curatorial Insights 2/3
Free & open to all
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 three will feature the work and experience of Bloc Project’s Curator David McLeavy, alongside a guest curator Alexandra Warder, who is currently the Director of Bosse & Baum, London.
David McLeavy is a Curator and Writer living and working in Sheffield and is currently the Director of Bloc Projects and Founder & Editor of the website YAC | Young Artists in Conversation. He was previously the co-director of the international residency and exhibition programme Picnic Picnic and partner for the clothing label Curbar Cycling Apparel.
Alexandra Warder is the co-founder and director of Bosse & Baum, a contemporary art gallery in London. Prior to this, she worked at a number of major London galleries including White Cube and Marlborough Fine Art. She has a BA degree from the University of Bristol, and a Masters degree from University College, London. She is on the committee of Her Stories, an annual art auction supporting female charities.
