For our December A Closer Look, Giles Jackson-Maffett, Assistant Exhibitions and Displays Curator at Tate St Ives, will be discussing the exhibition Nashashibi / Skaer. Taking Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer’s collaborative film Flash in the Metropolitan, 2006 as a starting point, Giles will explore how this exhibition proposes new ways of looking at museums, artists and history.
Giles joined the Programme Team at Tate St Ives in May 2018. Prior to this, he was Assistant Curator at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA), where he worked on projects such as Stephen Willats, 2017, Daniela Ortiz, 2017 and If All Relations Were to Reach Equilibrium, Then This Building Would Dissolve, 2016. Previously, he was Curator at Proud Galleries, London.
