OUR FUTURE IS ELSEWHERE is a collective project. It is a withdrawal from the space where you found this poster, the space of formal curatorial education in an academic institution and its potentiality as yet another exhibition space during the MFA Fine Art Degree Show. Instead of putting our energies into producing a public outcome the graduating class of MFA Curating organised a rural retreat at The Owl Barn residency in Gloucestershire from Friday 8th - Sunday 10th July 2016. This was an act of mutual care, of tending to our needs in order to better care for the needs of others - for artists and for publics.
The aim was to share experiences and anxieties, as well as tactics and plans, to catch up with each other, to talk and to listen as we push our horizons back, as we make our futures present tense.
