Cass foundation alumni selected for edition 12 of the prestigious Curators’ series.
Date: 3 May 2019
Artists Hana Noorali & Lynton Talbot, both alumni of Foundation Art and Design at The Cass, have been selected by DRAF (David Roberts Art Foundation) for their Curators’ Series #12.
Hana Noorali & Lynton Talbot are a London-based curatorial duo who work collaboratively with artists to produce text, exhibitions and live events. Recent exhibitions include Am Nuden Da: RETROSPECTIVE at Chelsea Space, London (2017) and The boys the girls and the political at Lisson Gallery, London (2015).
In Autumn 2019, they will present collaborative practices that move away from measurable outcomes and materialised objects, towards active forms and organisational structures. Working within a set of self-defined parameters, and in conversation with DRAF as an institution, the curators will develop an exhibition that considers performance, archives, image-making and distribution strategies in relation to language and its constitutive effects.
The Curators’ Series supports independent curators by commissioning research-based exhibitions. The series presents diverse fields of knowledge, methodologies and practices. Each year, DRAF invites an individual, duo or organisation to curate an original exhibition. DRAF will be announcing further details in due course.
Hana Noorali co-founded RUN Gallery in 2007, a non-profit project space and curatorial collective active until 2011. She curated Lisson Presents at Lisson Gallery, London and currently writes, produces and presents the ongoing podcast series Lisson ON AIR. In 2018 Hana edited a monograph on the work of artist and Benedictine Monk, Dom Sylvester Houédard. Its release coincided with an exhibition of his work at Lisson Gallery, New York that she co-curated with Matt O’Dell. Hana has been a Visiting Tutor at Goldsmiths University and Chelsea College of Arts.
Lynton Talbot is the founding director of Parrhesiades, a multi-platform project space for artists who work with language either written, spoken, or otherwise performed. Lynton also writes specifically with artists and for exhibitions as a form of curatorial practice. He holds academic posts at Chelsea College of Arts and Kings College London in their curatorial departments and works within Tate Public Programmes to deliver Museum Curating Now. He is also a sometime participant in OFFSHORE, an itinerant performance company and pedagogical structure, initiated by Cally Spooner in 2017.
DRAF is an independent, non-profit organisation for contemporary art dedicated to the transformative forces of the art encounter. DRAF has welcomed over 100,000 visitors to thought-provoking and challenging international programmes including exhibitions, commissions, performances and discussions since it was founded in 2007.
