Panel Discussion at Goethe-Institut New York
Artist residencies have a long history, beginning in the early 20th century. Today there are numerous international residencies for artists, serving a distinct function within the contemporary art world. The development of curatorial residencies has not been as widespread, but has initiated a complex set of institutional models. This panel discussion will specifically consider different approaches to curatorial residencies. Speakers will share their experiences participating in residencies throughout Canada, Europe and the United States. On Curatorial Residencies will engage with various questions. What is the impact of curatorial residencies on research and production? In what way do they relate to various forms of institutional approaches? How are they defined in relation to artist residencies? Do curators and artists have the same residency needs? Have curatorial residencies developed in tandem with curating as a profession? How do these residencies activate networks and collaboration? What are the expectations of curators and hosts? Presented by the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) and MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38.
