Oxford Road, M15 6ER Manchester, United Kingdom
Much of the curatorial practice of Charles Esche, director of the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, is focused on examining, questioning and experimenting with the role of the cultural institution in the interplay between art and the interpretation of our present times. He is an influential writer on the cultural and political history of exhibition making and on the potential role of art in progressive social transformation. He published a selection of his texts on the subject, Modest Proposals, in 2005 and in 2007 he co-edited with Will Bradley the reader Art and Social Change. Esche has (co-)curated numerous large-scale international exhibitions and biennales and co-founded with Mark Lewis the journal Afterall. He was Director of the Rooseum Centre for Contemporary Art in Malmö (2000-2004) and Visual Arts Director at Tramway, Glasgow (1993-1997).
