‘Artist as Curator: Collaborative Practices’ - symposium

On Friday 19 April 2013, the MRes Art: Exhibition Studies at Central Saint Martins is organising the symposium ‘Artist as Curator: Collaborative Practices’ at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, with speakers Zdenka Badovinac, Clémentine Deliss, Liu Ding, Ines Doujak and Oliver Ressler.

This symposium is dedicated to the discussion of recent and contemporary developments in artists’ collective engagement with exhibition-making, bringing together artists, curators and authors who have been engaged in the organisation and resaerch of collective exhibition practice in different contexts internationally. 

Speakers will address different approaches to the production and presentation of curatorial practice that have been catalysts for cultural and artistic activities in their locality. These will include the Laboratoire Agit’Art in Dakar, IRWIN in the former Yugoslavia and contemporary collaborative projects elsewhere.  

‘Artist as Curator: Collaborative Practices’ follows and responds to Afterall’s ‘Artist as Curator’ symposium, which took place at Central Saint Martins last November, with contributions from Ekaterina Degot, Elena Filipovic, Ruth Noack, Willem de Rooij, Valerie Smith and David Teh among others.
