Some years ago, Richard Birkett and Mason Leaver-Yap were curators at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London at the same time, then each moved on. Birkett became the curator at Artists Space in New York for a number of years before returning to the ICA in London. Leaver-Yap moved to New York also, curating exhibitions at Sculpture Center in Queens, and commissioning moving image works at the Walker in Minneapolis, before becoming associate curator at Berlin’s KW Institute for Contemporary Art. Both now live in Glasgow, Scotland, and share concerns with what it means to work at more intimate scales and through prolonged engagements.
