Curatorial Roundtable at e-flux
Wednesday, October 24, 2012

e-flux
311 East Broadway, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10003

This roundtable discussion brings together four of the international faculty of the Fall 2012 Curatorial Intensive: Curating Beyond Exhibition-Making: Anthony Huberman (The Artist’s Institute, New York), Chus Martínez (dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel, Germany), Sally Tallant (Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK), and Dominic Willsdon (SFMoMA, San Francisco).

Moderated by Kate Fowle, topics under discussion will include what “non-exhibitionary” practice constitutes; how new institutional models are developed around this approach to curating; and how this recent interest in pedagogy—the “educational turn” in art—has impacted ways artists and curators collaborate.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with Curatorial Roundtable in the subject field. For more information contact Misa Jeffereis at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
