Curators and CollectionsBack to Projects.
The Parlour is a proposal for The Burrell Collection, by Panel and Atelier EB, published as a part of the 'Curators and Collections' Seminar arranged by The Contemporary Art Society for Glasgow International 2012.
The seminar focused on questions such as; where is the next generation of curators who will form partnerships and work with collections? How will the all-important research that supports excellent exhibition making be sustained? With the evolution within curatorial practice how will we engage and inspire audiences through our public collections of modern and contemporary art?
Panel were invited to make a speculative proposal for the Burrell that would challenge some of the limitations associated with borrowing from the collection whilst imagining new possibilities and contexts for its interpretation.
The Curators and Collections Seminar took place at The Burrell Collection on 3 May 2012.
