Vienna-based independent curator Kathrin Rhomberg presents a lecture, “The Virtue of Unprofessionalism,” for the third Curator’s Perspective of 2012, co-presented with the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. Rhomberg’s lecture takes stock of the constantly increasing number of exhibitions realized at the highest imaginable standards, questioning if professionalism and standardization, while fit for the economic system, may not be the best possible structure for art.
The Curator’s Perspective: Kathrin Rhomberg has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; by support from the Austrian Cultural Forum; and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees, ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson, and ICI Partners and Patrons.
