Camilla Singh discusses her current exhibition at AGYU Uniforms for Non-Uniform Work with Kristin Weckworth, Narwhal curator “on-display” at the gallery.
The exhibitionUniforms for Non-Uniform Work is comprised of six “uniforms” for six specific Canadian curators: Philip Monk, David Liss, Kristin Weckworth, Emelie Chhangur, Paul Butler, and Derek Mainella. Each is situated within a series of mini installations embedded within the overall design of the exhibition in order to spatially manifest ideas related to each curator’s unique practice. Through the use of sculptural objects and “props” that are set in relation to the “uniforms,” or the creation of custom-designed support systems which literally hold them up, Singh furthermore stages the behind-the-scenes “management” (from interns to institutions, etc.) on which all curatorial work depends. Taken as a whole, Uniforms for Non-Uniform Workimplicitly acknowledges the embedded role of curating in exhibition-making and of art making in curatorial practice. More Info
