  • Collaborating curator, program developer for ODD Space: Adelina Ivan: Time Delusion, Musette Kube Gallery (May 2016); Adelina Ivan: Atena Adjusting Her Sandal (April 2016). We started ODD NIGHTS in 2014 with the firm belief that the role of a gallery goes beyond showcasing art. Also, we never defined ourselves as gallery, but rather an open-ended space providing the necessary context for art and its related activities, a place that welcomes collaboration and encourages cross-cultural pollination.ODD NIGHTS is the purest incarnation of this philosophy, bringing together perfomers, VJs, artists and other agitators on the fringes of arts&theory.

Education

2017

Masters, Postgraduate

University of Kent

  • Canterbury, United Kingdom
  • The Contemporary was a cross-disciplinary M.A program whose aim was to discover what it means to read the contemporary period through its aesthetic practices and to think theoretically about the contemporary moment. The program was co-taught by staff from the School of English, the School of Arts, the School of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, with seminars alternating between the Kent campus at Canterbury and the ICA. Through the seminars delivered at the ICA, which arose directly out of the ICA's 2016/2017 program, we were introduced to examples of current aesthetic practice as well as to spaces and structures of the contemporary.
