Richard Flood is Chief Curator at the recently re-opened New Museum in New York. Prior to this Flood was chief curator at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.

‘Detours’ is a series of talks introducing views from elsewhere by leaders in the visual arts. Speakers discuss the relationship between practice and context: how institutions and professional practice develop in response to specific situations, both geographic and cultural.

All talks are free and take place in the unique Trades Hall of Glasgow, designed by Robert Adam in 1791-94 and now – the medieval cathedral aside – the oldest building in Glasgow still in regular use for its original purpose.

Commencing in 2008, the series will run over three years, with ‘seasons’ of talks in March-May and October-November.

The ‘Detours’ project is a collaboration with the Centre for Art in Social Contexts, Glasgow.
