Thresholds is a digital exhibition that explores the impact of Covid-19 on relationships to home. Curator Aidan Moesby commissioned artists Sonia Boué, Lindsay Duncanson and Catriona Gallagher to develop new films and photographs in response to their experiences of 2020. The exhibition includes an essay by writer and academic Jade French co-commissioned with Corridor8.
This exhibition is organised as part of Aidan Moesby’s curatorial associateship with MIMA through our partnership programme with DASH, MAC and Wysing Arts Centre. This national partnership supports the development of Disabled curators. Read more here

ENTWINED Residency -VARC, Northumberland
July 2020 - April 2021
ENTWINED: Rural. Land. Lives. Art.
Over the ten months in Northumberland, I will be researching perceived categorisations of the natural, manmade and wildness. I will be looking at systems of knowledge, control and management of nature locally, identifying such traces in the landscape alongside more collaborative practices and rituals performed on the land. Working with local people will be key and I’m hoping to develop collaborations with performers to include local voices, dialects and bodies.
Mapping such patterns, whether physical or informational, will constitute my beginnings in drawing and writing, which I anticipate will progress into moving image over the course of the residency. I plan to begin with an open ended approach to the Ecology of Place and see what strikes me as pertinent and holds my interest when immersed in the locality.
no–body’s room Online Video Art Screening - The Room Projects, Paris
8th - 10th January 2021
Created and Curated by The Room Projects in collaboration with LUX
no — body’s room investigates, researches, and brings together video artworks that reflect on the idea of the “cannibal image”. The image is seen as a “living body” that nourishes itself with other images.
The screening will show works that establish a dialogue between the representation of the human body and the moving images, following three sub-categories: Skin, Biting and Chewing, Viscera.
Each category will screen works of contemporary artists alongside three “guest” archive video artworks of LUX that will be announced one day before the screening.

Back home, Kypselian Salon - Snehta, Athens
29th Dec 2020 - 10th January 2021. Online exhibition
The exhibition will be accessible at www.snehtaresidency.org on the opening day.
Given the social constrains we are all facing, Snehta decided to develop a virtual version of its annual Salon exhibition to make it accessible to every single one of you. While it was difficult to showcase new artworks in the exhibition, the team selected works from the depot to present you a well curated experience. The exhibition takes place literally in a Kypselian Salon, that being Ag.Zonis' apartment where some of the participating artists and former residents have lived and stayed there during their residency at Snehta.
