Gavin Wade, 2013
Gavin Wade is an artist-curator and ACE Research Fellow in Curating at the University of Central England. His work has developed from structures within exhibitions for supporting the work of others to a broader enquiry into responding to and generating new sites for art, resulting in projects looking at collaboration and the public space. Current projects include Support Structures Phase 1-6 (with architect Celine Condorelli, 2003-5) which is an RSA Art for Architecture project evolving over 6 sites across the UK; and Strategic Questions (2002-2007), an ongoing series of 40 projects in 40 publications including Q32. What is Harmonic? with Bill Drummond, Duncan McLaren and Simon Wood (Sharjah Biennial, UAE, 2003) and Q16. What is the brain? with Henrik Schrat (Kunstlerhaus Bethanian, Berlin, 2005).
