Common Future

Curating and the Commons
On Apr 12, 2024

Chicago, IL, USA

The 2024 Curatorial Forum presented a public curatorial conference around the theme of Curating and the Commons, where we explored both the civic nature and the civic possibilities of art and curatorial practice. In "Common Future,panelists Michele Horrigan (Director/Curator, Askeaton Contemporary Arts), Joseph Cuillier (Co-Director/Creative Director, The Black School, Shani Peters (Co-Director/Managing Director, The Black School), and Megha Ralapati (moderator and Program Director Fellowships, CEC ArtsLink) examined the civic role that the arts can play in not only imagining, but actively creating a better future. How can curatorial practice move organizations big and small to prioritize the values we hold over the economic value they protect?
