Op dinsdag 27 en woensdag 28 februari 2018 zal Rayne Booth - kunstenaar, art manager en curator bij de Temple Bar Gallery + Studios in Dublin, Ierland (TBG+S) -  een aantal atelierbezoeken afleggen bij kunstenaars in Den Haag.

Onderstaand een korte omschrijving van de interessegebieden van de curator.
"I am interested in working with artists who are at a certain point, where their practice is changing or developing, or, ‘on the cusp' of something important.  We aim to provide a full support to artists in order to facilitate this development. I would like to meet artists who are pushing their practices forward, working in and researching sculpture, painting and moving image. I am also interested in artists who engage with the world through material interventions and activism."

Beknopte biografie van de curator
Rayne Booth lives and works in Dublin, Ireland, where she works as a curator and arts manager. She holds a degree in fine art painting from the National College of Art and Design Dublin and an MA in Arts Management from University College Dublin. Since 2011 she has worked as Programme Curator at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, where she devises artistic programming, curating and project managing exhibitions by leading artists. Recent and upcoming projects include solo exhibitions by international artists Lola Gonzales, Katrina Palmer, Otobong Nkanga, Aimee Siegel and Charlotte Prodger and Irish artists Hannah Fitz, Stephen Loughman, Gavin Murphy, Orla Barry and Declan Clarke. Rayne is also founder and Director of Dublin Gallery Weekend, a visual arts festival which takes place each November, involving more than 30 galleries, museums and art spaces across the city.
As a curator at TBG+S she works directly with artists to support them to make new work specifically for our gallery space at TBG+S, taking into account all of the challenges of the specific location of the gallery in Dublin's most active tourism area. TBG+S works with artists who are at all stages of their career, from emerging to more established, and our policy of solo exhibitions is intended to support exhibiting artists taking risks in developing new work. Exhibitions at TBG+S focus on expanded forms of art making, which are still very much public facing and take their audience into account.

Over het Stroom atelierbezoekprogramma
Stroom nodigt sinds 2006 regelmatig curatoren, kunstenaars en critici uit binnen- en buitenland uit om atelierbezoeken af te leggen bij Haagse kunstenaars. Het atelierbezoek biedt de kunstenaar de gelegenheid om zich met zijn/ haar werk te presenteren. Het vormt een gelegenheid tot opbouwende kritische reflectie op het werk in een gedachtenwisseling met een gekwalificeerde expert. En in het verlengde hiervan wordt natuurlijk de bekendheid met het werk gestimuleerd.
