Facilitating International Practices As An Independent Curator says
CDCC is pleased to present Facilitating International Practices as an Independent Curator, a panel discussion featuring Earl Miller, Xenia Benivolski, and Yan Wu, moderated by Shani K Parsons. Reflecting on the conditions and challenges posed by the existing Canadian art system in engaging with global contexts, Miller, Benivolski, and Wu (joining us remotely from China) will discuss curatorial practice as a vehicle for international exchange, and present some of the different methodologies employed by local independent curators seeking to facilitate cross-national and cross-continental art projects. Financial, social and cultural issues involved in working in a range of venues will be addressed as well.
