2017 Curatorial Assembly in New Orleans

Nov 29, 2017 – Dec 1, 2017

New Orleans, LA, United States
Joan Mitchell Center

2275 Bayou Road
New Orleans, LA 70119

Developed by ICI, the Curatorial Assembly in New Orleans will offer a small group of leading institutional curators, working in the American South, the opportunity to engage closely with their peers to explore pertinent issues relating to curating, programming, institutional building, audience engagement, and the development of regional and international networks.

The Curatorial Assembly will propose a format for knowledge exchange where each participant shares with the group their current research and upcoming programs. The format will encourage critical curatorial feedback from their cohort, while opening up the possibility of exploring the potential for cross-programing and institutional collaboration between the participants, and also with ICI’s traveling exhibition program.

The activities will be led by: María del Carmen Carrión (Director of Public Programs and Research, ICI) and Renaud Proch (Executive Director, ICI).
