Shenkman Lecture in Contemporary Art
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
For the past several decades, exhibition curating has become a central component in the system of art production and distribution. With the growth of biennials, contemporary art museums, and public interventions, and their proliferation across the globe, curatorial practices are going through intense processes of experimentation and innovation. Exhibitions are not only expanding to accommodate creative activity from all around the world, they are also turning into sites of production of new artistic visions, concepts forms and social relationships. Ultimately, they form a driving force in the making of new cultural localities in the age of globalisation.
