In our first event of 2020, we are delighted to welcome Clare Patrick who was one of our talented Emerging Curators in 2018.
Clare Patrick was born and raised in Cape Town. She completed her BAFA (Hons) with distinction at UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2017, before completing an MA in Art History (Photography: History, Theory, Practice) at the University of Sussex, also graduating with distinction in 2019.
In October 2018, Clare joined the Brighton Photo Fringe Emerging Curators programme programme. In late 2019 she was accepted to the L’AiR Creative Research Residency in Paris and then spent a month at the Greywood Arts residency in East Cork. Through her curatorial work, Clare has put together and participated in several exhibitions and art fairs in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Brighton and Paris, and will be travelling to Marrakech in 2020.
Clare's art practice is based in installation and moving image, while her research to date has engaged with decolonial strategies and knowledge production, through performance, textiles and photographic histories.
We look forward to seeing you there and finding out more about this multi-layered work.
