Guest lecturer and facilitator, Andrej Bereta, will hold a presentation and two workshops about contemporary curating for the participants of World of Art and a number of external participants. The programme is based on his original project Kustosiranje / About and around curating, developed in 2011 with Srđan Tunić. The presentation will explore the co-creation of an exhibition project, a process created many times with various groups of participants (academic and less formal groups). Additionally, there will be the following two workshops, held in English:
Curator vs Artist
Friday, 27 October 2017, Project Room SCCA
Role-play exploring mutual collaboration between artist and curator, respecting different positions, each other’s integrity and the importance of healthy communication. Participants will be divided into two groups.
Evaluation of an Exhibition
Saturday, 28 October 2017, Art venues in Ljubljana
After being guided through an art exhibition, participants will have the chance to evaluate it. Instead of „measuring“ an exhibition, the focus of this workshop is to create an open space for critical thinking, debate and exchange of thoughts between participants. Evaluation will require individual work from each participant.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 20th October 2017
Applications are accepted at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
REGISTRATION: unemployed 10 EUR, students 15 EUR, others 20 EUR (VAT included). The participants will pay the registration fee at the first meeting.
