Three curators have been selected from an open call to participate in the Artists’ Legacies in the Museum project –
Tosin Adeosun will be working with Vanley Burke and his archive
Lauren Craig will be working with the Maud Sulter Estate
Alinta Sara will working with the Donald Rodney Estate
Each curator will present a study day for the Museums participating in the project on their archival research in 2023.
Artists’ Legacies in the Museum was developed by Art360 Foundation to engage museum curatorial teams with the archives of Vanley Burke, Donald Rodney and Maud Sulter, to help recalibrate how institutions collect, share and preserve contemporary art and cultural heritage for future generations.
The project focuses on the development of architectures of transparency – operational structures that encourage collaborative working dynamics, thoughtful interpretation, cultural competence and humility, dialogue and action. It aims to create foundational guidelines which help museums give agency and presence to artists and curators as a central part of their working practice.
