Open curatorial studio at Gallery TPW R&D

As a follow up to “Unshowable Photographs,” the panel discussion that launched my curatorial residency at Gallery TPW R&D space, I’ll be spending the next few weeks there in an “open curatorial studio,” testing out how to transform the questions that the panel discussion raised into an experimental gallery exhibition.

Rather than trying to document or translate the panel discussion into the format of the exhibition, this open curatorial studio will try to expand on some of the latent and unexplored issues that the panel discussion raised. Focusing on the contexts in which photographs (or videos) become showable or unshowable, this curatorial research time will allow for experimentation with different presentation formats and juxtapositions between the different methods artists, publishers and curators use to circulate difficult images.

During the first week of the open curatorial residency, my focus will be on research, with the following week devoted to experimentation with different modes of display and presentation. Feel free to come by, grab a coffee, and chat any time during the open curatorial studio hours:
