This next bit of work experience I’m really looking forward to. It wont be til the 6th-9th of May so it’ll be right at the end of my work experience term but it’s a fantastic oppertunity.
I’m really inerested in curating and so i contacted two art galleries to see if they could offer me anything.
I contacted Aspex gallery in Portsmouth. They haven’t got back to me yet so I may have to give them a ring or pop in to speak to them.
I also contacted the Quay Arts Centre which is a gallery in Newport on the Isle of Wight. They have got back to me with ttwo amazing opperunities.
The first would be to help them as they will be taking one wxhibition down and putting a new one up. And then on the 8th and 9th I’ll be working with other students figure out how to best to interperet the Work of Martin Creed, a Turner Prize winning artist, to audiences that visit the gallery for the Artist Rooms on Tour Exhibitio that will be held there in the Summer. I am so excited about these oppertunities.
This is the email I got back from them.
Please accept my apologies for this belated email.
We will certainly be able to find some work for you in the beginning of May.
We are currently recruiting a small group of students to work with us on the production of a gallery guide for our summer exhibition – Martin Creed, ARTIST ROOMS on tour.
This would be a fantastic project to work on; you’d be investigating Creed’s practice and find ways of interpreting his work to audiences visiting the exhibition. This session will be led by art consultant Gill Nicol and myself and run for 2 days on the 8th and 9th May.
Is this something you would be interested in?
We will also be taking down an exhibition in our Rope Store Gallery on 6th May and installing the new show on the 7th May.
So I think we’d have at least 4 good days working on gallery projects.
Does your Course Leader require us to fill out any forms at all or provide anything?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts on the above.
