Jeremy Millar is an artist, freelance curator and writer based in Whitstable, Kent. As a curator, he first came to prominence with the exhibition 'Institute of Cultural Anxiety' (ICA, London, 1994). This group show questioned the museum/gallery's role as a preserver of knowledge, combining work by artists and writers as diverse as J.G.Ballard, Hans Haacke, Hieronomous Bosch and Jake and Dinos Chapman. From 1995-2000 he was Programme Organiser at the Photographers' Gallery, London. During this time he curated a number of group exhibitions including 'Blue Suburban Skies', 'May Day' (1999) and 'Speed: Visions of an Accelerated Age' (1998), a collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, that combined work from a range of disciplines in order to explore the impact of speed on twentieth century life and culture.
As an artist, Millar has participated in shows including 'A Shot in the Head', Lisson Gallery, London, 2000 (where he showed a collaborative work made with Graham Gussin) and 'Nothing', NGCA, Sunderland, 2001.
As a critic and writer on contemporary art his work has appeared in numerous publications including Tate magazine, Afterall and Artforum. More recently, he co-curated (with Barbera London) 'Escape' as part of 'Media_City Seoul 2000' and is currently Director of the first biennial of British Photography in Brighton.
Teresa Gleadowe is the Course Director (since its foundation in 1992) of the MA Visual Arts Administration: Curating and Commissioning Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, London.
This influential course, jointly funded by the Arts Council and the Royal College, was the first postgraduate course in Britain to specialise in curatorial practice as it relates to contemporary art.
From 1989-92 she was Head of Information at the Tate Gallery, London, where she managed both the Press and Information Offices. Prior to this, she worked at the British Council as Assistant Director in the Visual Arts Department with responsibility for both the British Council Collection and on the Council's programme of circulating exhibitions.
She is a frequent contributor to seminars and debates on the subject of curating and since January 2001, Acting Head of the School of Humanities at the Royal College of Art.
