The last decade has seen the evolution of institutions that enable the development of networks and collaborations between artists, curators, and organizations both regionally and internationally. These platforms have generated programming and research that goes beyond national or localized mandates of the traditional contemporary art museum, and instead encourages the accumulation of knowledge through shared concerns based on experience and practice. This has led to new ways of thinking about collecting, recording histories, and producing discourse, as well as extending exhibition models and the involvement of artists in the creation of institutional structures. What are the key issues and practices that have generated these new frameworks?

A panel discussion with Zdenka Badovinac, Director, Moderna Galerija, Ljubljana; Anthony Huberman, Distinguished Lecturer, Hunter College and Director, The Artist’s Institute, New York; Maria Lind, Director, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; and Lu Jie, Director and Chief Curator, Long March Project, Beijing.
Chaired by Kate Fowle, Director, Independent Curators International, New York.
