ANDY
RANKIN



INDEPENDENT CURATOR 



Andy Rankin, a young curator, has been conducting a two year long unprecedented and necessary research, on the collapse of our civilization, the anthropocene epoch, and collapsology itself.

As if reading the history of art in reverse, his curatorial research begins from various artworks and protocols on the brink of disappearance, destruction, or even, ready to be set off in case of emergency
."     M.D. 




Between 2012 and 2014 he co-founded Hiatus, la revue, a french self-published review. The print has two themes, one is dedicated to cold journalism, while the other has a litteral scope, based upon Oulipo's theories. From 2014 to 2017 he hosted the SUPERFLAT project space, which promoted the emerging contemporary art scene. He has co-founded the curatorial collective Diametre from 2014 to 2019. From 2015 to 2020, he was a member of Wonder, an itinary artist run space based in the suburbs of Paris. He is a member of C-E-A, the french association of professional curators, and a member of two think tanks about the collapse of the oil-based civilisation and their imaginaries. He is currently on residency at the Cité internationale des arts, thanks to a grant offered by the CNAP.
