Curating Biennials: The Politics of Mediation
Tuesday, February 1, 2022, 3:30 - 4:45 PM EST via Zoom
Free and open to the public. Register here. An email with the event link will be sent to you closer to the event.
Curating Biennials is a panel on the recent work of biennial curators Renata Cervetto (Berlin Biennale 11, 2020), Elia Alba (La Trienal – Estamos Bien, Museo del Barrio, 2020/2021), and Lauren Mackler (Made in LA 2020, Hammer Museum, 2021). Among other topics, the conversation will explore how contemporary biennial curatorial practice mediates between institution and audience, its role in the valuation of local knowledges and memories, and the ways in which artwork and artist selection engage with site-specific circumstances.
This informal conversation between invited presenters will be followed by an open discussion with audience members, moderated by SCAH Programs Coordinater Elect Paloma Checa-Gismero (Swarthmore College). The program is SCAH-member supported and open to all members of the public. To learn more about SCAH pay-as-you-can membership, please visit our membership page.
