Towards a Train of Curatorial Thought: The past and future projects by curator, Lindsey Sharman

Outlining several projects both completed and ongoing Lindsey Sharman from the University of Calgary will trace common threads that run through her work. She will present how artworks and artists included in past exhibitions continually inform the way she creates exhibitions going forward in an attempt to work with the static nature of exhibitions.

Lindsey V. Sharman is curator of the Founders’ Gallery at the Military Museums in Calgary, an academic appointment through the University of Calgary, Libraries and Cultural Resources, adjunct professor with the Department of Art, and Past-President of the Academic Women’s Association at the University of Calgary. Sharman has studied Art History and Curating in Canada, England, Switzerland and Austria. She has an honours degree in Art History from the University of Saskatchewan and a Masters in curating from the University of the Arts, Zurich. In her current position she programs and curates a minimum of four exhibitions a year covering a diversity of themes that explore human conflict worldwide through projects by local, international, historic, and contemporary artists that challenge viewers’ knowledge of and interaction with war. Exhibitions of note include Seeing Soldiering: in theatre with those who serve an exhibition of Althea Thauberger; Walls Between People, a photography exhibition that examined the use of graffiti on contemporary barrier walls, and Mapping A Cold War, an exhibition of painting, photography, and video by Leslie Reid with historical and archival materials.
