Apply now: Art Fund and fig-2’s Curatorial Practice Workshop

The Art Fund is delighted to offer 15 bursary places for the upcoming workshop at the ICA Studio.

As part of fig-2, the forthcoming workshop, Exploring Different Positions in Curating and Running Art Institutions, will bring together a range of arts and museum professionals to discuss the future of curating and public institutions.

As discussed at the previous fig-2 event, Politics of Display, museums can take different perspectives on past events and contribute to the shaping of personal identity. As a result, museums have a duty to transform monologue into conversation. This curatorial workshop, led by Fatoş Üstek, will build on the recent tendencies within the fig-2 programme to develop a conversational relationship between the artist, the art work, the curator, the institutions and the public. It will explore art’s potential to provoke change and will investigate the role that museums and galleries play in society.

The workshop will adopt a unique relationship to the fig-2 exhibition, in which the artwork itself will help to activate the discussion.

Events details

The workshop will be held between 1pm and 5.30pm on 24 September at ICA Studio, Carlton House Terrace, SW1 5AH, London.


Applications are open to all museum and gallery professionals who work with public collections.
