Providing illustrations from a range of recent curatorial projects, Anna Douglas will trace the evolution of her curatorial practice that experiments with an ‘action model‘ in which the curatorial ‘process’ is understood as self conscious, creative, situated, interpretive, social, moral and political at every stage – and in which curator and audiences alike are re-imagined as collaborators in making meaning. Her presentation addresses concepts and practices of ‘participation’ and ‘interpretation’ within a framework of ‘critical humanism’ – in which people are at the centre of everyday meaning making.
