Next TrAIN Lecture

The next TrAIN Open Lecture:

Alex Farquharson, Director of Tate Britain, will present on approaches to curating that cross knowledges, geographies, histories and identities from the vantage point of contemporary art.

Contemporary art is here understood as a privileged, performative site for transdisciplinary enquiry. He will illustrate his presentation with references to exhibitions he curated and co-curated at Nottingham Contemporary (where he was Director until 2015), on ideas such as the imaginary of the ocean deep; the art, religion and political history of Haiti; the figure of Jean Genet; and art and ecology in the Americas; as well as exhibitions curated at the institution by artists themselves, including Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Mark Leckey and Glenn Ligon.
