Role: Co-curator and Coordinator

Terminal is not where; it’s when. It unpacks the broader questions when brought on. When everything is unmoving, uncertain and unprecedented, how do we change, c essential?

Terminal brought together the work of over 50 students produced during (and in response to) isolation. Based around "survival essentials", our curatorial concept set out to unpack the students’ experience of spending 18 months in a terminal-like space, and seeing it as a prolific period in critical thinking and making. Visitors were invited to join this speculative space spread across nine exhibition Zones: Arrivals, Customs, Vestibule, Bus Stop, Declarations (Preview only), Waiting Room (Library), Round Table, Control Room and Duty-Free.

Terminal featured a programme of live performances, installations, moving image, sonic-work and expanded publishing, whilst also dialogic events such as workshops, experimental seminars and poetry sessions. In addition, Visual Communication’s experimental Export Radio station transmitted soundbites from the event online.
