• Simon Sheikh

    (United Kingdom)

    Simon Sheikh's research deals with the modalities and potentialities of curating, within the relation between exhibition-making and political imaginaries. He is concerned with how exhibitions articulate through the arrangement, narrative, and spatialization, as well as how the very format of the exhibition can be expanded, negated or transformed. Research areas thus include the making of public, the instituting of subjectivity and the politics of display, both in terms of critical writing, the conceptualization and realization of exhibition projects, and in the form of an ongoing formulation of histories of exhibition making and reception.
