hat if museum objects communicated with the past, rather than being simply being preserved for the future? What if an archive presented a multiplicity of narratives, rather than laying out a singular story?

In her first ever show, the result of a one-year curatorial development programme at 421 in Abu Dhabi, young Iraqi curator, Mona Al-Jadir, rethinks how institutional memory can be displayed.

This summer an exhibition curated by The Courtauld’s MA Curating the Art Museum students will open at The Courtauld Gallery.

The Courtauld’s students are creating a compelling and exciting exhibition by bringing together Post Impressionist paintings and prints from our collection with contemporary works from the David and Indré Roberts Collection. The result promises to be an exhibition that encourages us to find thought-provoking and unexpected connections between artworks that span more than a century. All the artists represented explore new ways of depicting their own experiences of nightlife, entertainment, and spectacle, often playing with the strange effects of light after nightfall. We are delighted that Good Morning, Midnight has been such a fruitful collaboration with the Roberts Institute of Art.
