Talk by Emily Pethick (United Kingdom), Curator-in-Residence
This talk inaugurates Reason to Exist: The Director’s Review. An integral component of The Making of an Institution, this series of encounters brings together directors and founders of organisations that adopt critical and innovative strategies to advance the development of contemporary art practices and discourses. Emily Pethick will present The Showroom, a contemporary art space in London that focuses on collaborative and process-driven approaches as well as cultural production within its locality and beyond, linking experimental artistic practice to a range of communities of interest and political concerns. Responding to the context of The Making of an Institution, the talk will look at The Showroom’s mission statement and how this was developed in tandem with the organisation’s development. Pethick will also share some new approaches to the process of “evaluation” The Showroom is currently developing using mapping strategies.
