Contemporary Curating: The Gig Economy says
A free public forum presented by NAVA, QCA Griffith University, and QUT Art Museum; supported by ACUADS.

NAVA recently launched a new campaign for artists' fees. In this forum, we want to discuss issues of precarity when it comes to artists' fees and labour, especially given the casualisation and changing nature of arts work. 'Contemporary Curating: The Gig Economy' will examine the changing role of the curator, both in QLD and internationally, and ask: how does the shifting global economy and workforce impede or expand the role of an Independent curator?

This forum will explore the role of the contemporary curator by interrogating curating as a creative act that shapes and leads artistic discourse within and outside institutional spaces. Speakers at this forum will investigate the global trajectory of the independent curator, and address the opportunities and challenges of independent work in the gig economy.
