The Office of Graduate Studies at OCAD University is pleased to announce that Dr. Mark Nash will be conducting a master class and an open conversation on what he calls “affective curating.” Renowned for his work as a curator, film historian and filmmaker, and with specializations in contemporary fine art moving image practices, avant-garde and world cinema, Dr. Nash’s approach to curating as a form of montage involving ideas and emotions is pioneering and critically compelling.

Biography

Graduating from Cambridge University in Natural Sciences and English, and then undertaking postgraduate film studies at the Slade School of Art, University College London, Dr. Nash’s scholarly work and practice has been at the juncture of theory and practice. In the 1970s and 1980s he was actively involved in British film culture as editor of Screen (1976-81) and as an independent filmmaker. His PhD from Middlesex University was based on his writings from this time.  Prior to joining the Royal College of Art, Dr. Nash was Director of Fine Art Research at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. He has also been a Senior Lecturer in Film History and Theory at the University of East London, and Visiting Lecturer on the Whitney Museum Independent Study Programme in New York. Dr. Nash has also taught in a number of institutions in the United States including Harvard University, NYU and UC Santa Cruz.  In addition, he has collaborated with Universitario Napoli Orientale, Department of Anglo American studies (collaboration on the EU-funded 'Museums and Libraries in the Age of Migrations' project), Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, Department of Curating and Jagellonian University, Cracow, Department of Curating.
