As part of ICI’s Curator’s Perspective—an itinerant public discussion series featuring international curators—Valerie Cassel Oliver (Senior Curator, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston) will present her current research interests and curatorial projects.
The Curator’s Perspective is a free, itinerant public discussion series ICI developed as a way for international curators to share their research and experiences with audiences in New York. These talks provide ICI the opportunity to assemble documentation on and disseminate information about a wide variety of international perspectives on art today. In 2014, audiences will hear perspectives on art, culture, and exhibition-making from curators based in Glasgow, Utrecht, Buenos Aires, Houston, and Harare. Practitioners will talk about what they’re most interested in at the moment, including the artists and the sociopolitical contexts that are shaping practices now.
The Curator’s Perspective series has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Access Fund.
