Research & Development
In collaboration with TPW R&D, my research intersected with a public space, during two consecutive evenings in early October.
The R&D website is conceived as a bulletin board of ideas, discussion and resources - an ongoing and accumulating archive of what has been happening at the gallery both publicly and in more intimate research moments. Broadly speaking, the Events/Exhibitions notes give the details about public programs, while the Research/Conversation notes elaborate on the concepts and debates around what we’re up to.
Our new project space, branded as TPW R&D, is intended as a transitional and flexible space for shared research and the development of critical discourse. As a temporary research office, our focus will be discursive programming — writing, screenings, discussions, workshops, fluid exhibition strategies — where we can think out loud about our methodologies for looking and showing as much as we continue to directly experience the force of images.
Blog post #2 - Open curatorial studio: Unshowable Photographs
As a follow up to the first event in the “Coming to Encounter” series, I’ll be spending the next two weeks in the Gallery TPW R&D space, testing out how to transform the questions that the panel discussion about "Unshowable Photographs" raised into an experimental gallery exhibition.

For the first event in the series, we'll use "relay interview," a methodology for shared conversation developed by Jacob Wren (PME-ART).

Thursday, September 20, 2012, 7pm Working from Ariella Azoulay’s notion of the event of photography, and Susan Meiselas’s writing about untaken and unshowable photographs, this panel discussion asks respondents to discuss images that are difficult to show, have been withheld, or which we know exist but do not circulate.
