"They Do Things Differently There" - Edinburgh College of Art's MA Contemporary Art Theory curatorial project at Talbot Rice Gallery - Panel Discussion, 12th June 2010

Please join our group of eleven postgraduate curators along with guest speakers Anne-Marie Kramer (University of Warwick), Daniel Watt (Loughborough University) and Nicholas Oddy (Glasgow School of Art)for this informal yet informative event, in connection with "They Do Things Differently There" - Edinburgh College of Art's Contemporary Art Theory MA students' curatorial project at Talbot Rice Gallery.

An intervention with historical archives, taxonomy and museology is a gesture of alternative knowledge or counter-memory offering the possibility of an alternative future.  The panel discussion will offer an opportunity to further expand and

interrogate the conceptual threads of 'They Do Things Differently There'.

"When we study, discuss, analyse a reality, we analyse it as it appears in our mind, in our memory. We know reality only in the past tense. We do not know what it is in the present, in the moment when it is happening, when it is. The present moment is unlike the memory of it. Remembering is not the negative of forgetting. Remembering is a form of forgetting ." (Milan Kundera 1995)

Saturday 12th June, 2-4pm, Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh.
