Curation notes for Final Show

July 2, 2009 at 2:19 pm (Final Show)

The entries here document my involvement in the final show. Asides from communicative aspects, such as keeping people informed about rep meeting discussions, I organised the aftershow party at the Crypt and created the music and sound design for the MADA showreel. (below)

Course Rep meeting 22nd Jan

January 24, 2009 at 5:31 pm (Final Show)

During this meeting people it was mostly the final show that was addressed. The main things that were covered were:

– location

– designation of space

– curation

– dates / external examiners

The location of this years show has been decided:

Wilson Road building (same as last year)

The reason being that setting-up our work at the Peckham road building might be too hectic and stressful, since the BA students will be having their show directly before us. This would leave us with very little time to install our work, since they’d need time to take down theirs!

With regards to the designation of space, if there is a particular location / room that you feel is very well suited or essential for your work you have to apply / put a proposal forward to Alain. Also, it’s likely people from the same course will generally be within the same area. For example, last year MADA had the whole basement (as well as a few other areas).

Curation will be slightly different this year from the previous. According the Alain the students last year were essentially the ones who organised and implemented the curatorial aspect of the show. However, this year he has suggested that the students from each course curate along with their subject leader and Alain will oversee everything. Alain also put forward the idea that the amount of students on a particular course should dictate how much space designated to them.

Now, as for dates. The show will happen at the beginning of July and assessment will take place within the two weeks prior to that. Assessment has two stages, one by our subject leader/s and then once more by the external examiner. From my understanding, the external examiners look at a sample of student projects across all the MA’s, so your work may or may not be seen by them.

Alain mentioned he will be giving a lecture on Wednesday 28th Jan to talk the above issues and more.

That about covers it. If you have any questions or issues you’d like me or Simon to put forward to Alain, please get in touch – – Cheers, Zai
