'Live Your Questions Now' is a case study for Cubitt Education's publication 'Aging in Public: creative practice in ageing and the public realm from across the UK', edited by Daniel Baker and published by Cubitt Gallery, Studios and Education, London in 2016. The publication was linked to Cubitt's programme 'Public Wisdom' (2011-2015). My case study is about 'Live your questions now', a group exhibition I curated in 2011 for Mackintosh Museum, The Glasgow School of Art. 'Live your questions now' was a survey show of national and international artists who were sixty years old or over. Artists included: Sam Ainsley, Helena Almeida, Alasdair Gray, Joan Jonas, Ana Jotta, Bela Kolarova, Lygia Pape and Michael Kidner. The show was a critique of the model of a survey show, which in recent years predominantly has focused on young, emerging artists. The exhibition aimed to look at contemporary practice through the longevity of a career and assess what drove artists' to keep on making their work into their 60s', 70s' and 80s'.
