Curated by Sacha Waldron
CRATE's new exhibition and project space programme launched in June 2013 with The Survey, curated by Sacha Waldron.
The survey thematic is explored through four main strands:
Survey as a format for looking at the work of artists - the survey show and its relationship to the solo show, charting an artists practice;
Survey as a form a mapping - surveying locations or tendencies.
Survey as an investigation into administrative formats, evaluation and information gathering
The Survey in terms of the conceptual mass mail-out communication processes of 1970’s conceptual artists and how we relate this to contemporary practice.
Alongside The Survey, a parallel programme entitled Exploratorium invites both emerging and established artists to use CRATE as a laboratory and space for experimentation. Exploratorium launched with Lisa Milroy's Party of One, a painting installation and exhibition that invites the public to perform Milroy's paintings.
Sacha Waldron is the current holder of CRATE's Curatorial Bursary, supported by the Arts Council South East and a Kent County Council Grant for the Arts.
