Genealogies of Black Curating in Britain | Ambivalent Mainstreaming: Black Curators and Institutions 

8 July 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Thursday 8 July 2021, 14:00–16:00 

Panel discussion with Gilane Tawadros, Dr Nima Poovaya-Smith and Mark Miller. 

“When you go through the door (…of ambivalent mainstreaming) it is a dangerous territory; it is an incredibly tricky territory and all sorts of monsters are waiting on the other side to assimilate you up”. Stuart Hall’s 2006 observation about the challenges faced by Black artists and curators in mainstream institutions serves as a provocation for this panel. How have Black and Asian curators navigated this tricky territory and how have their practices helped to reshape British art institutions? 

This event was recorded and is available to watch below.
