More Information

The Gathering: building the Arts Council Collection 1979 – 2009 uncovered some of the complex processes that have led to key works entering the Arts Council Collection over the past forty years. Bringing back the voices of the artist and selectors involved, the exhibition revealed how and why particular works came to be acquired. 

The Gathering is the result of the first curatorial competition for post-graduate students run by the Arts Council Collection in 2008. The competition, called Select.ac, offered the opportunity to curate an exhibition drawn from the Collection, and the first winner was Robert Dingle, from the MFA Curating course at Goldsmiths College in London.
