Curating Playfully Online: From Photography Workshops for Spacemen to Parties in Spreadsheets
For this lunchtime talk we are joined by Curator & Creative Producer of playful exhibitions & experiences Marie Foulston. Marie will discuss her recent stint as Guest Director of Now Play This & how we can curate virtually.
This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel
Curator & Creative Producer Marie Foulston will discuss her recent work with Now Play This, a festival of experimental game design, showcasing interactive and playful work as part of the London Games Festival. As Guest Director Marie developed the programme, looking specifically at games that related to the theme of 'Breaking Point'- games are the aesthetic forms of systems, and the festival focused on works that break or subvert those systems in interesting and creative ways.
She will also reflect on her recent experiences of shifting her curatorial practice from the physical to the virtual. From organising a landscape photography tour for a herd of spacemen to hosting a party in a shared google doc.
Join us on Fri 22nd May, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
