Future Collect Film

As the third and final Future Collect commission prepares for opening at Towner Eastbourne, we are delighted to share this film about iniva’s groundbreaking national partnership programme. Featuring the project artists, partner gallery curators and curatorial trainees discussing their work, the film explores the public they engage and examines the importance of challenging and changing the nature of curating in regional and national collections.

Future Collect is a three-year funded programme, transforming the culture of commissioning and collecting within museums across England to better reflect the diversity of our heritage and to engage a broad contemporary audience. Beginning in Manchester Art Gallery at the start of the pandemic in 2020, with Northeast-based artist Jade de Montserrat, the project then moved to Hepworth Wakefield in West Yorkshire, showcasing work by Emii Alrai.

Finally, the project moves to the South coast in Eastbourne where Maria Amidu’s exhibition in the perpetual back and forth will open at Towner on 4 May as part of our #iniva30 programme.
