Goat Major Projects is the name for a collaborative artist-led project by Richard Higlett and Emma M Price. A project space in the Canton district of Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom, GMP's aim is to focus on curatorial practice and the diverse approaches to exhibiting and displaying artworks that could be sub-divided into 'context' and 'placement'.
In the spring of 2012 GMP opened at 70a Llandaff Road in a building within the Printhaus arts complex, with "Endless Kiss"
The future program will feature a series of invited guest curators who will propose a context and agenda for viewing which will be expanded on through open forum events and dialogues on the nature of curating.
Goat Major Projects also presents as a series off-site presentations through the Don't Shoot The Messenger interventions programme.
