Welcome to Arts, Education and Technology
We report on all exciting changes in the art world. For example, Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts has chosen two new curators in a rearrangement and expansion of its staff. Following a period of hiring previously, which saw two other junior additions to the admin team, the organisation dealt with a further reformation and growth of its artistic and programming staff in a shift to re-establish this fine department.
Joining a curator was Remco de Blaaij, co-curator of Picasso in Palestine. A few years ago, Blaaij finished his research at Goldsmith’s University’s Centre for Research Architecture, with the publication on border practices of artistic culture against the backset of Suriname, South America. In his time at Van Abbemuseum, he additionally worked on a very long elaborate job dealing with issues of globalisation, capitalism, national identity and modern day immigration.
Glasgow International Festival
Ainslie Roddick, the newly appointed Programme Co-ordinator, finished at the Glasgow School of Art in 2008. He is the co-founder of The Duchy, an excellent gallery and project space based in Glasgow, Scotland. Roddick has dealt with a number of projects at The Duchy over the last few years, including a large offsite group show at The Lighthouse for the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art in 2012, several solo commissions, filmings, collaborations with artist-run spaces and schemes with young curators.
As part of the rearrangement, Kerri Moogan will take up a new post as Programme Development Manager, focussing on developing new partnerships, development opportunities and income streams to take the organisation forward.
