Join Future Collect curatorial trainee Hollie Douglas as she presents on research developed over her traineeship with iniva and Towner Eastbourne.

Slow Time (working title) is a research project inspired by initial investigations into memory, nostalgia and the archive. It has developed through conversations with artists to look at imagination and dreaming as an embodiment and expression of resistance and freedom. Slow time proposes an inconsistent way of looking at time, which permits a way of thinking about time that allows for dreams, radical imagination and memory to be nurtured.

Hollie’s research talk will include a presentation of her ideas and then an opportunity to explore these themes further in open discussion with attendees. The research looks at weaving together artistic practices that she has encountered and drawing from theories such as ‘Black radical imagination’ and ‘Black utopia’.

Hollie Douglas is a curatorial trainee currently working at the Towner gallery Eastbourne, on Future Collect, an iniva project which is looking at changing the way institutions develop collections in the future. Her work is largely concerned with the representation of artists of colour in exhibitions and collections and how curatorial processes and activism can change this and embedding the narratives of overlooked artists of colour into art history. Hollie is also currently studying an MA in Material and Visual Culture at University College London.
