Art Talks @ Shoreditch House with Louise O’Kelley (2014 – )

Art Talks is a series of presentations and conversations by some of the most exciting artists,
curators, gallerists and other art professionals working in the field today
speaking about cutting edge practices and current trends in contemporary art.
Organised and moderated by Louise O’Kelly, Artforum’s representative for the UK & Ireland,
founder of Block Universe Performance Art Festival, and Fatos Ustek, independent curator and writer. Held at Shoreditch House since July 2014, the series have been exploring contemporary artistic, curatorial and philanthropic practice with a special focus on Women in the Arts and 90s London Art Scene.

Curating Fast and Slow, Changing Times, Changing Tempos?

Exhibition-making can take place at myriad different tempos and contexts. Larger-scale museum exhibitions can take years to research and realise whilst other approaches to curating thrive on faster turnaround and a more ‘magazine’ format. Biennials by their very nature take place over a cycle of two years, whilst Skulptur Projekte Münster has a ten year cycle. Some exhibitions are put together at phenomenal pace – sometimes through necessity, for instance if a show suddenly falls through or an opportunity opens. How does the duration and gestation of a project affect its realisation?

Hashtag biennale 519,024 posts (May 12, 2020)

I must admit that, upon receiving the invitation from the Board of Editors of the OnCurating journal, I did not expect the level of challenge I was signing myself up to. The simple task of selecting 50 images was further complicated when I was also asked to reflect on and speculate about the direction that the art world is currently embracing.

Artist’s legal rights Sessions: Covid-19 Special

Artists’ Legal Rights Sessions at Block 336

From copyright to consignment agreements, an artist’s practice can often feel fraught with pitfalls not covered at art school. Beginning on 11th June 2020, Block 336 will present a series of interactive talks on artists’ legal rights over the coming months, designed to explore some of the recurring themes in this area through the lens of how they affect artists. Organised by intellectual property lawyer and Block 336 board member Jon Sharples, the sessions will bring together artists and arts and legal professionals to discuss copyright, artists’ contracts, artists’ estates and more. Alongside these talks, Block 336 will also collate and present information about available resources, advice clinics and law firms with pro bono offerings. Originally intended to be hosted at the gallery, the series will now be presented as webinars via Zoom.
