Actions and Detail Panel
Sat. 24 September 2016, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm AEST
This upcoming Melbourne forum will explore the role of the contemporary curator in light of the findings of the Elvis Richardson produced, CoUNTess Report.
No longer bound by institutional space and often working independently, contemporary curating is a creative act. Curators are the drivers of artistic and critical discourse creating opportunities for intersections between disciplines, practices, audiences and exhibition making.
Within this context the panel will question and discuss if a gendering of opportunities occurs, contemporary curatorial approaches within the diverse arts infrastructure, and what meaningful action might look like beyond rhetoric.
