Curatorial Intensive workshop. Mumbai, India. December 2010.
This public symposium is a day-long conversation on contemporary curatorial practices in India and abroad, produced in cojunction with the Mumbai Curatorial Intensive, developed and implemented by ICI in collaboration with the Mohile Parikh Center (MPC), Mumbai.
What are the emerging forms of curating? Is it focused on new formats for exhibition-making or creating broader discursive frameworks? What are the new institutions and platforms that are resulting from curatorial thinking? Are there new kinds of collaborations and partnerships that are now possible?
Speakers each will give brief presentations outlining one project that is relevant to the topic and their practice. Together these will provide wide ranging field reports on international contemporary curatorial models active throughout differing cultural contexts. Each set of presentations will be followed by moderated discussions.
