BAN Annual Report, 2021

During 2021 BAN has supported a diverse and dynamic programme of activity, with over 60 workshops, seminars, conference sessions and facilitated meetings. We have launched a new independent website, featuring content from across the programme and a Membership Directory. With a growing Membership of almost 1,200 individuals involved in curating British art across the spectrum of professional practices, commitments and contexts, BAN has become an increasingly visible and progressive presence in the sector. In many ways a pivotal year, 2021 has seen BAN set out a singular vision for British art curating, based around commitments to critical autonomy, access and democratic engagement, expressed through its approaches to programming as well as programme content.

The report sets out the background and development of BAN and its various activities, including the Research Groups, Seminars, Emerging Curators Group and Conference, as well as its website, Membership and communications.

The Annual Report covering activity in 2021 is now available to read via Issu and available to download via the BAN History page.
