Join us for a Wednesday Walkthrough - a gallery tour where artists, experts, researchers and academics give short talks in their field of expertise relating to the concepts explored in our exhibitions.

In Gallery One we are currently presenting REꓘONCILIATION, the first solo exhibition in a European institution by multidisciplinary artist, musician and social researcher Julian Abraham ‘Togar’ (b.1987, Indonesia).

In this walkthrough, curator and writer Dr Lucy Lopez will invite guests to think together about the themes of hosting in Togar's exhibition, and what it might look like for institutions to hold space for the social and political ecosystems of which they are part. After highlighting particular works in connection to her research into practices of care in art institutions, Lucy will invite participants to sit together, and share refreshments and reflections on the exhibition.

Dr Lucy Lopez is a curator and writer. Currently she is Curator of Radar, a programme of commissions connecting to academic research at Loughborough University, UK, where she is developing the programme Rehearsals (for a world we could live in). She recently completed her doctoral research Instituting with Care: how might art institutions care well? and is currently working towards a publication disseminating this work, which examines what it would mean to put practices of care at the forefront of institutional and infrastructural thinking. She is curator of the long-term project Get Well Soon, which had its first iteration in the form of an exhibition at Ormston House, Limerick, in 2023. Together with Alba Colomo, she is co-founder of la Sala, a small ecofeminist art organisation and growing space in Nottingham, UK. Her work draws on feminisms, practices of care, instituting, and the politics of work. She has curated exhibitions for organisations including Grand Union, Eastside Projects, and BALTIC, and she was previously Curator of Exhibitions and Research at BAK – basis voor actuele kunst. In 2014 she co-founded the London-based art organisation Jupiter Woods. She has lectured, taught, and published internationally.
