Thinking About Curation: Leading-Edge Case Studies from the Field with Natasha Boas
Independent curator, writer, and scholar Natasha Boas, co-teacher of the Big Ideas course Curation Across Disciplines, presents case studies from innovative contemporary curatorial efforts. These include Facebook’s Global Artist in Residency Program, for which she has written an essay for the fifth-anniversary book; Galerie Itinerrance’s Street Art 13, the Paris urban art renewal project featuring the work of twenty-five artists of thirteen nationalities and thirty-two monumental murals; as well as other large-scale curatorial projects. This globe-trotting talk will expand our conceptions of curating beyond the art world’s traditional institutional triad—university-museum-gallery—and will help launch our Big Ideas course.
