Here Be Curators. Who or what is a curator? Are curators necessary and, if so, what are the limits of their domain? The title of "curator" appears to be changing in meaning at an exponential rate. Is the title of curator an attempt to embellish a more mundane practice with an essence of creativity and expertise? Has the curator become a creative, or are we only now acknowledging the creativity and necessary specialisation involved in the field? What impact does such a curator have on the process of exhibiting art?
Artbollocks Theatre. Dramatic readings of the worst gallery press releases, the most comically bad artist statements and the most incomprensible critical writing about art, followed by a public discussion about the pitfalls of verbal and prose interpretation of the visual.
Five gallerists discuss their experience of the art world and the wild heterogeneity of an emerging art scene in a changing part of New York.
Artist Jeremy Hutchison will collaborate with Ben Street to create a critical exploration of arts education, taking the form of interactive workshop activities at roaming locations throughout the space. With the role and function of arts education coming under increased pressure in difficult financial times, this performative activity - critical, irreverent and engaging - will make a case for education as a site of questioning.
Imagining a re-synchronizing (The Phantom Twin). The talk will uncover deeper understandings regarding ideas of creation through new forms of collaboration. The (not so) science fiction ideas of artificial intelligence as an increasingly active agent within modes of making. How alternative modes of artistic production and collaboration can be imagined through new forms of social and political change by focusing on radical autonomous networks vs accepted nodes of production.
