CPA Talk | Multi-voices in "Curating History / Histories of Curating"
Nov 22, 2018 Thursday 19:00 - 20:30
2F, Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai 20 Huqiu Road)
This is the sixth talk in a series under “Second Assembly: Exhibition-Making Practices in China and Southeast Asia in the 1990s,” a curatorial project jointly organized by Biljana Ciric and Rockbund Art Museum.
An exhibition is not only where works are collected, arranged and presented, but also a rendez-vous of complicatedly interwoven relationships – works/artists, time/space, curating consciousness/concept/practice, community developed through collective efforts, political-social-economic-cultural context, as well as audience involvement and participation, which can be seen as a complex on a whole. How can this complex develop a roadmap for discussing, analyzing, recording, describing and studying exhibitions?
We are honored to have LU Pei-Yi, a curator, researcher and art critic from Taiwan, as our guest speaker to share her recent experience in research and practice such as editing the research-based book Contemporary Art Curating in Taiwan (1992-2012) from 2012 to 2015, providing a proposal – The Future of Contemporary Curatorship: A Hub for Moving Platform and Thinking Machine Hub – for Art Critique of Taiwan from 2014 to 2015, and organizing the talk series of Curating History/Histories of Curating in Asia I and II from 2017 to 2018. In the talk, LU will try to find materials, methods and unique perspectives for the ongoing curating of contemporary art and discuss exhibition history by basing on the present and looking back on the past, in a bid to review the development and challenges of contemporary art curation in Taiwan from an Asian perspective.
