Arts-based research is increasingly used across disciplines as institutions work to decolonise their approaches to knowledge. This brainstorming workshop bought together researchers, artists and creative practitioners based at, or working in collaboration with, the University in view of developing a hub for arts-based and community-led research. The workshop was generously supported by the Leicester Institute of Advanced Studies.
Why Look Back? Contemporary Art & Institutional Memory
Nottingham Contemporary, 24 November 2023
A British Art Network seminar convened by Isobel Whitelegg and Ben Cranfield (Royal College of Art) in collaboration with Nottingham Contemporary and Canan Batur.
This seminar identifies, draws together, and critically reflects on a growing field of practice -namely, non-collecting contemporary art institutions working with their pasts to reflect on organisational development and generate new exhibitions, projects, public programmes and narratives.
