What We Talk About When We Talk About Work

2 November 2017 5:30 pm - 2 November 2017 7:00 pm

What We Talk About When We Talk About Work is a series of public discussions bringing together curators and artists working across the north of England and from different European cities. The sessions focus upon exploring ways of working outside, across, between and within existing institutional structures. Each event takes a particular thematic, inviting practitioners to share their current projects and their approach to working.

The programme launches on Thursday 2 November 2017 at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, with events occurring regularly until August 2018 in various venues in the north of England. Each session will be broadcast live by art magazine http://thisistomorrow.info/

The inaugural event explores the theme of ‘Rethinking the Institution’. Participants address the potential to establish alternative institutional structures for engaging with contemporary art practices. Speakers include Miguel Amado, Senior Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art; Binna Choi, Director of Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, Utrecht; and artists Maurice Carlin and Emily Hesse.

The project has been developed by Laura Mansfield in collaboration with this is tomorrow, Contemporary Visual Arts Network North West, Yorkshire & Humberside Visual Arts Network, North East Contemporary Visual Arts Network, and the participating venues. It is funded by Arts Council England.
