Arts Council England have confirmed support for the arts programme developed by Matthew de Pulford for CRATE through its first Curatorial Bursary.
The programme comprises six events due to take place between October 2009 and June 2010. Artists confirmed for the programme include Juneau Projects, Lucy Harrison, Mark Gubb, Tom Duggan, Juan Cruz and James Howard. Bad Translation looks at the challenges that arise when we communicate: a set of differences and absences that stand between subject, speaker and audience. The programme will ask what part these differences and absences play in contemporary life, and how tools designed to aid communication can be used or abused. The programme is also supported by Kent County Council.
