Head of Department - Curator
WHAT WE SAY
Gilly is working on a very ambitious FLAMIN Production, Stim Cinema, which will be premiering at Nottingham Castle in November, then moving to galleries across the country. We see the world through the lens of a group of neuro divergent artists, who have been working with the director from concept to completion and exhibition.
Gilly is responsible for all exhibition relationships. The job involves liaising with galleries and being instrumental with negotiating finance for this area. She oversees production deadlines to ensure timely installation of work. Curators who work with artists on gallery exhibitions are an absolutely essential member of the filmmaking team, and raise additional finance for this part of the process.
We are impressed by the rigour, consistency and creative energy Gilly brings to the project and her tremendous support for the director, Steven Eastwood, in what is a very complex production.
Gillian is the curator of the Stim Cinema project and is working with the collective to coalesce ideas and to help develop the form of the gallery presentation, as well as securing and working with gallery partners. She brings a wealth of bespoke experience through her curatorial work with Hayward Gallery Touring, leading on major exhibitions such as British Art Show and co-curating exhibitions such as Slow Painting and Hollow Earth, as well as curating an international series of live-art and time-based media events in London, New York and Lisbon. She is a lecturer in Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts and is co-Chair of the board of Film and Video Umbrella.
