LCC Joseph Kendra: If You Had a Year to Change Something What Would You Do?

The BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series 2013-14 was a project that explored the possibilities of change and transformation, through ideas about art, thought and technology. Organised in partnership with theatre company Quarantine, the project asked people to answer a simple question: If you had a year to change something, what would you do? A group of 30 recruited participants met across a series of events between 2013-2014, with invited guests from a wide range of disciplines. The ‘Thought Workshop Series’ acted as a case study for Tate Exchange, a new space at Tate Modern for the public to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life, through art. This talk explores how long-term collaborations between institutions, artists and the public might transform the way we think about current artistic practice, learning and the role of the museum.

    What We Talk About When We Talk About Work, ‘Fictional Encounters’

    The forthcoming event in the What We Talk About ... series of public discussions will explore the use of language as a medium within contemporary art and curatorial practices. Invited speakers will consider the “liminality” of language, focusing on the potential slide into fiction, misunderstanding and failure that a particular use of language in exhibition making and archival practice can facilitate. Speakers include Director of Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Alistair Robertson, curator and writer George Vasey and Amsterdam based curator, writer and semiotician Sara Giannini.
