The Barbican Young Curators present a show that blurs the line between historical narrative and creative response, through the use of never before seen archival material.
Forget Me Not: Reassembling the Barbican Archives, is a response to the process of institutional forgetting and an exploration into the implications of curating the past. This exhibition showcases work from the archives alongside newly commissioned work from other young creatives.
The Young Curators group is made up of thirteen young creatives who have been exploring archives and curation in the context of the Barbican Art Centre and Guildhall School of Music & Drama. The group has been using the newly founded Barbican archives as the primary material for their curatorial practice. Throughout the programme they have collaborated with archivists, curators and mentors from across the Barbican and other London based institutions to explore the potential of archival material.
This event runs from 12-6pm, on Saturday and Sunday.
