New Curators

01/05/2022 - 30/09/2022

The b-side New Curators are Alix Emery, Bobby Searle, Chris Lee, and Maddison Collymore.

In 2021 they undertook a mentoring program with b-side resulting in the curation of a series of community co-created performative walking tours titled ‘Promenade of Opes and Dreams’, which were led by the artist duo Promenade. The project also involved residents and visitors of Portland recording their hopes and dreams for the future on postcards to their future selves.

The New Curators have continued to work with b-side over the last year and will be expanding on their previous work using learning from last year to further explore co-creation and challenge curatorial practise.
