>> The CURATING ON THE WEB — WEBINAR aims to stimulate and expand critical and practical thinking about curatorial work on the web. The webinar will focus on curatorial interventions online that challenge the mechanisms and traditional models of producing and displaying contemporary art; offering a historical overview and new perspectives and ways of imagining the system of contemporary art and ‘being online’.
Over the course of 2 days (29-30 April), there will be a series of presentations and discussions moderated by the event organisers, and talks by guest speakers who will discuss their work and projects: Rebecca Edwards and Nimrod Vardi -arebyte Gallery (UK) / Zhang Ga (US) / Kaushal Sapre and Aarushi Surana (IN) / Guido Segni -Green Cube Gallery (IT) / Valentina Tanni (IT).
With the intent to nurture cross-cultural exchanges and discourses in the field of digital curation, the webinar will also examine the role of curating on the web in confronting structural transformations and moments of systemic crisis.
>> The webinar will be followed by a WORKSHOP (1 May) where participants will work with the moderators to generate observations, questions and speculative interventions related to curating on the web and the technological infrastructures in which it takes place (more details to follow)
>> Hosted by Walkin Studios and curating.online, this event is the result of a research collaboration with curator Vidya Shivadas (New Delhi, India), researcher Padmini Ray Murray (Bangalore, India) and curator Gaia Tedone (Milan, Italy) and artist Vivek Chockalingam (Bangalore, India) with the support of Mobility First! – ASEF Cultural Mobility and the Italian Council (9th Edition 2020), Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity.
