Curatorial Intensive Buenos Aires 2013

Aug 18 – 24, 2013

Buenos Aires, Argentina
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires (MACBA)

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Desarrollado por ICI en colaboración con MACBA - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires, el Curatorial Intensive On Curating: Between Theory and Practice examinó los desarrollos del campo curatorial y el papel cambiante del curador, mientras explora iniciativas basadas en la investigación, proyectos independientes , cobranzas y construcción institucional, y nuevas arquitecturas financieras, entre otros temas.

Este programa marcó el primer Curatorial Intensivo que ICI desarrolló en español, ofreciendo a los curadores de habla hispana la oportunidad de conocer colegas de todo el mundo, compartir ideas sobre cómo impulsar los parámetros de su práctica y construir una red para futuras colaboraciones.

Con motivo de este Intensivo, el ICI y el MACBA publicaron una lectura con ensayos clave sobre la práctica curatorial, muchos de los cuales no han sido traducidos al español con anterioridad.


Developed by ICI in collaboration with MACBA - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires, the Curatorial Intensive On Curating: Between Theory and Practice examined the developments of the curatorial field and the changing role of the curator, while exploring research-based initiatives, independent projects, collections and institutional building, and new financial architectures, among other topics. 

This program marked the first Curatorial Intensive that ICI developed in Spanish, offering Spanish-speaking curators the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world, share ideas on how to push the parameters of their practice, and build a network for future collaborations.

On the occasion of this Intensive, ICI and MACBA published a reader with key essays on curatorial practice, many of which have not been translated into Spanish before.
