Conversations on Curating

Conversations on Curating maps the radical potential of curatorial practice to enable connections between people and disciplines, individuals and their wider communities of interest and place.

Conversations on Curating explores how curating is continuously redefined and repositioned in ways that go far beyond exhibition-making. The programme draws on the local and global networks of curatorial scholars and practitioners in Cork, Ireland. 

Conversations on Curating is a collaborative initiative at University College Cork led by Carlos Garrido Castellano and the curatorial team of the Glucksman. Each conversation is presented online extending the museum’s focus on the contemporary intersections between visual culture, critical thought and curating, and the discursive relationships between academic research and art practice.

Our Spring 2021 series invites Josée Drouin-Brisebois, Chus Martinez and ruangrupa to discuss their curatorial practice. These public events are free and online but registration is essential. You can download a flyer about the series and click on individual booking links below.
