Following the recent discourse about broadened capacities and further diversification of curatorial practices, this conference at TATE Britain will look at three models that highlight possible approaches: 1 The Autonomous Curator, 2 Mediation as Production, 3 Curating Friction. The symposium is led by MA Curating students from Chelsea College of Art, Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Essex.
