Frieze Academy: Agents of Provocation

Frieze Academy: Agents Of Provocation

This four-part series of talks looks at the process of conceiving and constructing large-scale exhibitions via the opinions of some of the most influential curators, historians, producers and designers.

Curator & Talks Host

Katie Baron is a London-based writer, content director, brand strategist and futurist with extensive experience within the fashion, retail and design industries. A recognised force in futurism she is also the global Head of Retail (Trends, Insights & Innovations) at Stylus.com.

She is a regular contributor to SHOWstudio.com and Forbes.com, a founding member of LCF’s future-scoping think-tank Digital Anthropology Lab and is the author of two books on visual culture - Stylists: New Fashion Visionaries and Fashion + Music: Fashion Creatives Shaping Pop Culture. 

What can art and the gallery space do for activism?

Due to the unstable political climate, recent years have seen something of a revitalisation of political protests, marches and activism. Where activism is resurfacing with force, to what extent can exhibitions light the touch-paper of social change? How and where does counter culture infiltrate mainstream thinking? And which exhibitions have truly ignited a positive political and social change? This talk reviews exhibitions that explore counter-cultural undercurrents, probing below the mainstream gaze to examine the maverick movements, rebels and iconoclasts that engage, challenge and create change. 

Speakers

E-J Scott is a Fashion Historian.
