Radical Museology / Working the Collection

"Drawing from Claire Bishop's recently published Radical Museology Or What's Contemporary in Museums of Contemporary Art? and taking place against the backdrop of our reading of the Arts Council England Collection, this roundtable focuses on the economic, historiographical, geopolitical and wider societal stakes of public acquisition and collection display. Focusing on museums that offer non–conservative and critically–reflective models.

Participants include Jesús Carrillo (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid), Francesco Manacorda (Artistic Director, Tate Liverpool) and Marta Dziewanska (Museum of Modern Art Warsaw). Chaired by Claire Bishop."

The Public: the gallery for the future to close

"When designs for The Public were first put forward in 1994, the gallery was intended to revitalise the community. Some residents, however, saw the building as an extravagance and a waste of money. Criticism steadily grew as the project ran into difficulties, with debts rising and funding falling short. The venue had to be rescued on more than one occasion by government grants or Arts Council funding. Earlier this week Mr Cooper described the arts centre as a 'giant shoe box' and said it should not have been built when it was by previous council leaders in his Labour group. He said he had always had doubts privately about the building. Since The Public opened, however, visitor numbers have steadily grown for theatre, music and comedy performances, as well as exhibitions."

The Space: Building a Broadcaster in a Box

"Back in August last year, Tony Ageh asked us a question: 'How would you deliver a 'pop–up' television channel to desktops, mobiles, tablets and connected TVs?'

The typical response, particularly within the BBC, would be a suggestion to re–purpose much of the infrastructure we already have: media ingest, metadata management, transcoding, web publication, device targeting.

There was a snag, though. In fact, there were a couple. First, this wasn't just a pop–up TV channel – this was a 'broadcaster in a box', which could later be handed over to arts organisations to pick up and run with."

Cultural Olympiad UK East Midlands: World Event Young Artists

"World Event Young Artists (WEYA) is the first of its kind and will take place in the cultural city of Nottingham, England in September 2012.

This global event will showcase a selection of the best international creative talent, across a spectrum of artforms, in one city, providing an opportunity for 1000 artists from 100 nations to join together and share their creativity on an international platform.

The World Event will be a chance for international exchange on a global scale, bringing the city to life; it is as much about intercultural dialogue across political borders as it is about the practice of young artists.

This unique combination of factors will ensure an unforgettable experience for all who take part and its audiences. Its public programme and web resources will offer space for collaborative development, workshops, debates and symposiums across a mixture of structured and informal settings. Artists will take part in workshops and interactive engaging sessions which will be delivered by an exciting range of creative individuals and artform specialists, exclusively tailored for young artists of the 21st century.

This once in a lifetime event will thrive on discussion and collaboration with like minded artistic talents from across the globe and aims to encourage future partnerships.

World Event Young Artists 2012 is hosted by UK Young Artists and supported by Arts Council England, Cultural Olympiad East Midlands, Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham City Council."
