Come and join us at The NewBridge Studios Co-Work Space (Newcastle) for a discussion with Elinor Morgan, Senior Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art.
This will be a great opportunity for emerging curators to gain an insight into her curatorial practice, and to have an open discussion on different approaches to curating and exhibition making.
Elinor Morgan has been Senior Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima) since June 2015 where she has worked to develop it as an institution that is led by its context and publics. Since 2008 she has curated public art projects, residencies, exhibitions, public and education programmes across the UK working at institutions in Norwich, Cambridge, Birmingham and on independent projects in London. From 2012, she was ESP and Public Programmer at Eastside Projects, Birmingham, and worked on a large public art commission for the city. Prior to this, she was Artists and Programmes Curator at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge and advisor on the public art programme in Great Kneighton, Cambridgeshire.
She has written numerous reviews and essays for magazines and publications and is currently co-editing ‘The Constituent Museum’, a reader on how arts institutions might work differently with their publics. She has contributed to various undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Elinor is on the Board of Grand Union, a gallery and studios in Birmingham, and is a Trustee for Investing in People and Culture, a northeast charity that promotes the social and economic inclusion of people who are seeking asylum, refugees, and emerging Black and Minority Ethnic communities.
Practice Makes Practice is an artist development programme run by artists for artists. Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping artists with the necessary skills to manage their practice, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond.
