Curating Commissioning Producing

Introduction

About Electra
-

Electra is a London based contemporary art organisation which curates, commissions and produces projects by artists working across sound, moving image, performance and the visual arts. Through close dialogue with a range of venues and collaborators, we present our projects across the UK and internationally. At the heart of our practice is a process-based relationship between artist, curator and audiences, which seeks to give the projects space to find their own rhythm, public outputs, and discourse.

Electra's core aim is to foster a dialogue between a range of disciplines of contemporary artistic practice, to provide a platform for debate and engaged, dynamic investigations of urgent social, political and cultural questions.

Recent projects produced and curated by Electra include: Charming for the Revolution (The Tanks at Tate Modern, 2013); Toxic Play in Two Acts: Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz (South London Gallery, 2012); Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic (Tate Modern, 2012); From Below, as a Neighbour (Drugo More, Croatia, 2012); Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Toxic (Les Laboratoires D'Aubervilliers and Palais de Tokyo, Paris 2012); The Right to Silence, an event series developed in dialogue with Lawrence Abu Hamdan (The Showroom, 2012); Eris: The Path of ER (LUX/ICA Biennial of Moving Images, ICA, 2012).

Electra was founded in 2003 by Lina Dzuverovic and Anne Hilde Neset. The organisation receives its core funding from Arts Council England.
