Research Pavilion - Imaginary Access: Exhibition-Making as Public Inquiry

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 17:00 to 18:15
Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion

In a moment of political turmoil and geopolitical re-alignment - marked by the rise of various populisms and fascisms - this workshop asks how the claims for exhibition-making as a form of public sphere work now stand. Bringing together perspectives from exhibition-making, exhibition-histories, and curating-as-inquiry, this workshop will explore the changing political imaginaries and 'public-ness' of exhibition and of curating's changing "globalisms".
