Lovely attendees. 


 is the Project Space programme under development by CRATE's newly appointed curator, Toby Huddlestone.

Starting with a on April 16th 2011, it will examine alternate models of exhibition format.

Artist-led spaces such as CRATE (independent and experimental) should be at the forefront of current critical discussion around curatorial and cultural activity - it is in project spaces, temporary sites and 'independent activity' through which creativity and new ideas evolve. The focus of the exhibitions in this programme will shift from a place of consumption to a site of action, response and production. A more discursive framework will evolve through this allowing a more active involvement from the artists and audience, often prompting repeat visits to see how an exhibition or project is evolving.

Toby Huddlestone - new curator for CRATE.

CRATE has awarded its 2011 - 2012 Curatorial Bursary to Toby Huddlestone.

Toby is currently developing a programme tilted 'Exhibition as Medium', which primarily aims to concentrate attention on alternate models of exhibition format through the presentation of research through production. Exhibitions, screenings, events, talks, symposia, papers and publications will be produced alongside social events, informal discussion and electronic dialogue. The programme began with a 'closed' symposium on 16 April, now archived on the CRATE .

The main programme will commence in July 2011 and run until April 2012.
