Culture Changes in Curating

My research into time-based media is a response to the cultural change in curating (O’Neill, 2012) and advancement in technologies used within art practice (Rieland, 2014). As a curator I must respond creatively in order to survive and thrive in this practice.

Looking at the way time-based media is exhibited and the use of the liminal space of the gallery, I aim to develop an understanding of the current boundaries and contexts of display.

Things to do:

  1. Create a timeline of time-based media exhibitions and key moments in the UK.
  2. Identify themes in exhibition design/ key curators/ development of technology used by artists. Survey the context / increase general understanding both historically and in contemporary terms.
  3. Identify further gaps in my knowledge.
  4. Survey and review who else has contributed to this field.
  5. Locate my position.
  6. Formulate a viable research question.
