The Laboratory Gallery, Summerhall
Opening 1 July. Exhibition runs until 17 July
‘Company’, curated by Florida for Annuale 2016 (organised by Embassy gallery), is an exploration of the position of curating within expanded artistic practice and the role of the ‘Artist-Curator’. There is a growing tendency for individuals to identify as both, often as artists who set up artist-led spaces and therefore naturally adopt a curatorial or programming role. As artists who are now attempting to develop a curatorial element with our practices we want to engage with pre-existing methodologies and create relationships with groups and individuals who are working in this way. ‘Company’ will be a starting point for our enquiry into expanded curatorial/artistic practice.
Florida is Hannah Reynolds, Caitlin Merrett King and Isabella Widger; a group of artists working collaboratively on curatorial projects.
