X Panel: Young Curators
Summer 2009–Spring 2010

This project offered five emerging curators from the South West a chance to take part in a research trip, a gallery placement and to research, develop and deliver an off-site project. The young curators worked closely with Spacex staff and artists James Kennard and Heath Bunting to deliver Take Place: a day of events exploring ideas around artist intervention in public spaces. Take Place was programmed alongside an exhibition by Australian artist Shaun Gladwell and responded to the aspect of his practice that celebrates the creative ‘misuse’ of public spaces.
