Curating Seminar Guest Speaker Talks Online

Following our successful Careers Seminar ‘Why Put That There?’ we have uploaded the Guest Speakers Presentations. To listen to the presentations see here.

On the day of the seminar, delegates heard presentations from Clarrie Wallis, Curator Tate,  Jamie Stevens, Curator Cubitt Gallery, Simon Martin,  Director (Formally Head of Collections and Exhibitions) Pallant House Gallery, Dr Samantha Lackey, Curator The Hepworth Wakefield and Graham Gussin, Artist and Independent Curator.

The seminar was supported by The National Association of Fine and Decorative Arts Societies (NADFAS) who have kindly made the audio recording for this event.

‘Why Put That There? was a curating seminar organised by the Trust for young people to learn more about curation from a panel of experts. The seminar was an opportunity to hear presentations from professionals about their role within curation and the pathways to this career. The day also provided the opportunity to ask questions and to participate in tours of the current exhibitions.
