A new training course for aspiring curators from lower socio-economic backgrounds has been launched by three former Tate specialists. “So many people who would be interested in curating don’t even try to enter the profession because the courses are prohibitively expensive,” says Mark Godfrey, a former senior curator of international art at Tate Modern.

Godfrey will run the New Curators training programme in collaboration with two co-directors: Kerryn Greenberg, former head of international collection exhibitions at Tate, and Rudi Minto de Wijs, who worked in the institution’s marketing department and served as co-chair of its Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) network.

Cramerotti’s talk will focus on how artists relate to technology:

How can artists and curators understand and mobilise changes in technology, from the internet and smart phone to AI, block-chain, NFTs etc?

What are the risks of replicating spectacle-culture and potentials of resisting it?

What do we make of the initial hype surrounding NFTs and subsequent fall?

What does this mean for the future?

What advice would we give emerging curators who are interested in learning about artists working with new technologies?
