Sebastian Lopez, Director of Iniva, will speak about his vision for Iniva and work in curating. Iniva was established in 1994 to address an imbalance in the representation of culturally diverse artists, curators and writers. Iniva creates exhibitions, publications, digital projects, education and research projects, designed to bring the work of artists from culturally diverse backgrounds to the attention of the widest possible public. Anchored in the diversity of contemporary British culture and society, Iniva engages with culturally diverse practices and ideas, both local and global.
What makes a transnational practice or perspective in art or curating? TrAIN Conversations are informal conversations with invited artists and curators, followed by round-table discussions with the participants.
Speakers have included Gayatri Sinha, curator and critical writer on art, based in New Delhi, Paul Domela, curator of the Liverpool Biennale, Ingrid Pollard, photographer based in London, Judy Freya Sibayan, artist and curator based in Manila, Charles Esche, curator and Director of the Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven; and Jonathan Martin, filmmaker based in London.

I studied in the UK (Edinburgh and London) and I have worked in the UK, the USA, and in Europe, where I am now at the University of Amsterdam. Following my PhD I have written extensively on art in Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth century with two books, Painting Women (1994) and Beyond the Frame: Feminism and Visual Culture (2000) along with exhibitions such as ‘The Edwardian Era’ (co-curated 1987).
