GUEST SPEAKER TALK // ANNA COLIN // ISLINGTON MILL
Wednesday 1st May 6.30pm. FREE. First Floor Common Room Space.
The next guest speaker to be part of our 'Intervention' talk series in collaboration with University of Salford is independent curator Anna Colin. The talk will converge around the two projects she is concurrently working on: an exhibition exploring Victorians' utilitarian and socialist approaches to art on the one hand and an art school that places emphasis on social practice. She will present her research in progress and reflect on a set of historical and contemporary considerations around art as an educational and socially meaningful tool.
Anna Colin works in London as an independent curator. She is currently preparing a display at the Whitechapel Gallery, following a fellowship with the Contemporary Art Society and the Harris Museum in Preston. She is also involved in setting up Open School East, an art school and communal space in Hackney, which will launch in September 2013. Previously she was associate director of Betonsalon - Centre for Art and Research, Paris (2011-2012) and curator at Gasworks, London (2007-2010).
