1-54 Forum London 2019 | Research Based Art Practices

1-54 Forum London

3 - 6 October 2019

Research Based Art Practices

Bisi Silva once remarked in an interview, ‘I have acquired the professional maturity to embark on difficult, long-term, research-driven projects in a context where the support structures may not exist.’ Research was a critical part of Silva’s curatorial practice, but she also believed that research was invaluable for art practitioners. Artists Godfried Donkor, Mary Evans and Leo Asemota reflect on what research means to their own art practices with moderator Paul Goodwin (Independent Curator, Urban Theorist and Researcher).
