Free Curator's Talk: Lynne Cooke — Retrospective/Retrospection

AGO - Art Gallery of Ontario says

Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator for Special Projects in Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, joins us for a special talk.

Vast increases in the number, type and location of institutions dedicated to the presentation of contemporary art have produced a situation in which artists and curators now speak of a tread-mill of non-stop programming and commitments.

Dedicated to extended temporalities, the program of Dia Art Foundation in Manhattan offered a rare opportunity to reconsider normative structures underpinning exhibition-making today. The retrospective in turn became an opportunity for retrospection of another order: rather than a career summation, that canonical exhibition model became a means to explore ways in which past and future could be intersect in the present moment.

Monday, May 2, 2016

Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario
Free | First-come, first-served

Presented by the AGO in collaboration with "Slowness, not Sedation," the 2016 Joan & Martin Goldfarb Summer Institute of the Department of Visual Art & Art History, York University.
