February FORUM | Constellational Practice

Thursday 28 February 2013 / 6.30pm / Free / Drop-in

Goat Major Projects c/o Printhaus, 70A Llandaff Road, Canton, Cardiff, Wales, CF10 9NL

The theme of constellational practice will consider the many roles artists are required to adopt in order to pursue their own creative practice, in many instances this sees the artist as curator, which is perhaps a role that has evolved from creative and economic necessity. Where do these dual roles eventually become a ‘practice’ in themselves? And in this instance, what does it mean to ‘practice’?

The conversation will be perfectly situated in relation to Goat Major Projects own programme and aspirations, relating to a number of artist-led spaces and new exhibition project spaces that have an evolving and increasing relationship to institutions. Conversely we might ask, would an artist defining them self as a curator mean a curator can define themselves as an artist so easily, if it is at all easy?

FORUM is an informal, monthly event for early career artists, students and graduates, organised by WARP & Ffotogallery. It is a platform for practitioners from various disciplines to exchange ideas, experience and opinions on visual culture in an informal setting.

If you have any ideas or would like to talk about your practice in a future event email Emma Daman: with your suggestions
