Lunchtime Talk: Curating Playfully Online

Watershed Recommends: Fri 22 - Thu 28 May

Live stream

Please note: This live stream took place in May 2020

From photography workshops for spacemen to parties in spreadsheets.

We're delighted to be joined by Curator & Creative Producer of playful exhibitions & experiences Marie Foulston for this Lunchtime Talk.

Marie will be discussing how we can curate virtually and her recent stint as Guest Director of 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 2020 programme looking specifically at games that relate 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.

Marie will also be reflecting 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.

Live stream Marie's Lunchtime Talk on Fri 22 May from 13:00-14:00 and take part in the discussion afterwards, everyone is welcome!
