Japan Foundation Manila to Host Rethinking Curatorial Work Public Talk on October 21
The Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM), the Philippine Contemporary Art Network (PCAN), and the University of the Philippines Vargas Museum will host an online talk for the Curatorial Development Workshop series happening live via Zoom and Facebook on October 21, 2020, 9:30 to 11:15 a.m.
Aptly titled “Rethinking Curatorial Work”, the public talk will have speakers Japan Society in New York Gallery Director Kamiya Yukie, Hong Kong’s Asia Art Archive Researcher Chuong-Dai Vo, and Bandung Performing Arts Forum Co-Founder Taufik Darwis, as they share their insights on art and curation in their respective practice in these challenging times.
This workshop is the sixth in the series since 2009 and seeks to reflect on the relationship between the social context of the public health crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the kind of curatorial mode responsive to the ecology of production.
Speaking to this context is to explain and propose ways of understanding the complex and delicate condition and to translate these strategies into a curatorial mode or instinct.
It will be spearheaded by Patrick Flores together with other members of PCAN, namely Tessa Guazon, Renan Laru-an, and Roberto Paulino.
The Online Talk is free and open to all. Interested participants may register in Zoom with limited slots only but may also view the webinar for free on Facebook at the same date and time.
Do take note that the workshop on October 23 to 24 will only be open to invited participants.
