On 12 July (Thursday) at 19:00 the British Council with support of the Centre for Contemporary Art Winzavod is organising a talk with Dr. Nicholas Cullinan, a Curator of International Modern Art at TATE Modern, within the framework of the Parallel programme of III Moscow International Biennial of Young Art.
Nicholas is visiting Moscow after Kyiv where he is taking part in the series of discussions as part of the I Kyiv International Biennial of Contemporary Art ARSENALE 2012.
“The View and Experience of a TATE Curator: Contemporary Art in Russia and the UK” will feature Nicholas talking about his curatorial practice in one of the UK’s most respected galleries, focussing on the role of the contemporary curator, building up a museum collection, new trends in audience engagement, and working with a new generation of artists. Nick’s sphere of interest is Russian and East European art and development of exhibition projects.
Artist Flora Robertson, representing the UK at the III Moscow International Biennial of Young Art, will also take part in the discussion.
The talk’s moderator will be Elena Panteleeva, director of Winzavod and Chief Editor of Winzavod ArtReview.
This event is targeted at young artists, curators and museum/gallery specialists who are interested to learn about a leading British curator’s experience and to take part in a professional discussion about Russian and UK art practice, including potential partnerships in this sphere. It is also open to wider audiences interested in contemporary visual arts. The format will be a talk and public discussion/Q&A.
The meeting will be held with simultaneous translation at the Winzavod Lecture Hall. The entrance is free. (Please, provide your ID as a deposit for eyephones).
