The International New Media Gallery is pleased to present its participation programme Collective Curating: collaborative exhibitions that aim to reduce the distinction between curator, artist, and audience. Anyone with Internet access can suggest an exhibition concept by email, providing an outline and recommending any potential visual material. The shows will be hosted online and visitors will be able to add, extend or evolve the display. For more information on this approach, see Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook's book Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media (2010).
Our exhibition Between Self and Selfie (2013-14) was recently launched as an experiment into a model of curating somewhat comparable to a user generated platform. The show is a crowd-sourced archive of networked self-portraits that will grow and change over time. The exhibition aims to investigate the politics of self-representation online.
