Discussion: Migrating Documentaries
Thu 23 Feb 2012 7pm

Taking TJ Demos’s notion of the ‘post-documentary’ approach in the work of Zarina Bhimji as a starting point, this panel considers how emotive and political realities such as migration are dealt with in filmmaking through new aesthetic terms.


Discussion: The Real World: The Artist and the Gallery
Thu 8 Mar 2012, 7pm

Galleries can play a central role in many artists’ careers, but increasingly through choice, necessity or the nature of their work many artists operate outside of the system of gallery representation. Why do artists need galleries, how can they operate without them and how is the relationship between artist and gallery changing?

In association with Artquest.


Symposium: Gallery as Community
Friday 30 Mar 2012, 2-6pm

This symposium confronts critical debates dealing with community in the context of art practice, education and institutional activity. How should we define Community? What are the politics of working beyond the Gallery? With contributions from curators working in galleries across the UK today, as well as international artists and theorists.

This event marks the launch of the publication Gallery as Community (Whitechapel Gallery) in association with Community Art: The Politics of Trespassing (Valiz).
