Just a note that we are gearing up here in Scotland for next week's international summer school programme at Hospitalfield Arts, where I will be co-chairing some parallel conversations to the main event, FIELDWORK, programmed and conceived by Isla Leaver-Yap

The event is fully booked, but I hope to tweet and report to this list about the conversations.

FIELDWORK addresses the mechanics behind event production: the use of the event as a short-circuit within or an alternative to the space of exhibition production; the changing intentions of documentation in shaping the event, both prior to and as postscript; the role of curatorial qualifications and schooling in engendering customised knowledge about and established formats for the event; and the conflicts between the arrival of the event and the location in which it occurs.

With reports by international curators Isla Leaver-Yap, Fionn Meade, Sam Korman, Vivian Ziherl; and parallel conversations hosted by Gerrie Van Noord and Sarah Cook that explores the role of the event in local contexts, FIELDWORK examines the event as a space of circulation and becoming.

stay tuned,
