‘#Citizen Curators’
July 1 – August 27 2013, The Photographers’ Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies Street, London W1F 7LW

How does social media transform the way we record, share and ultimately remember major events? #citizencurators is a Twitter project co-directed by our own Peter Ride which documents the way Londoners responded to the Olympics of 2012. It aims to show how the contemporary history of London 2012 could be recorded by the people who experienced it without the filtering of an institution.

In the project, any citizen of London could become a curator using social networking and tweet their responses in words or images with the hashtag #citizencurators. These were then collected and archived by the Museum of London. On the occasion of the first anniversary of the Games, The Photographers’ Gallery presents and reanimates the many photographs and tweets created by #citizencurators.

Four super current and recent MA Visual Culture students have established a new curatorial collective, 4fold , and their first public event is taking place tonight: a film screening beginning at 8pm. The programme will include a selection of artists’ films, documentaries, and archival material that explores social housing, public interaction and surveillance. It’ll takes place at Princess River, Cody Dock (11c South Crescent, London E16 4TL – map here), which is only five minutes walk from Star Lane Station (new DLR branch).

Both 4fold and Cody Dock really need your support, please feel free to attend. In this weather, it’ll be a fantastic evening for sure!
