Curatorial Network Residency and Seminar. Basak Senova.

Online Curatorial Networks. 19 January – 9 February. In residence developing a curatorial seminar. Basak Senova is an international curator and founder of the online curatorial project nomad TV. She will undertake a two-week research residency hosted by Plymouth Arts Centre and i-DAT as part of the Curatorial Network programme to explore the potential of online environment and social networking tools as mechanisms for generating cultural exchange. The particular focus of the residency is on ideas of cross-cultural generosity, sharing, communication and social interaction in contemporary curatorial practice. Using the Curatorial Network’s online resources including discussion List and website as a research platform, Senova will initiate a debate about curatorial exchanges and develop a map of curatorial network in the region and internationally. In this way she will also map parallel cases and counter-actions that are linked to contemporary art practices that set new modes and channels for social, political and cultural information flow. The Curatorial Network runs a series of international curatorial research residencies and seminars as well as international visits for curators based in South West of the UK.
