ROMAN VASSEUR, Contingency of Curation

Contingency of Curation

The Contingency of Curation
Tate Britain
Friday 21 May 2010

Despite the diverse processes that make up the curatorial, its presence in artistic culture and its power to organise the reception and distribution of art, curation seems to struggle to transform the conditions within which it operates. At this symposium, which is led by MA Curating students from Chelsea College of Art, Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Essex, invited speakers from a range of disciplines address the contingency of curation and its consequences for culture and society. Speakers include Andrea Philips, Roman Vassuer, Munira Mirza, Emily Pethick, Emma Dexter and Sound Theshold (Daniella Cascella and Lucia Farinati).
