ASEF supports Curating-in-Depth | Curatorial practices in Slovenia, Croatia and the Philippines
On 6-16 May 2015 in Ljubljana, Slovenia
, emerging curators, artists and students from Slovenia, the Philippines and Croatia will meet to exchange views on contemporary curatorial practices in Asia and Europe.
Through a series of lectures, workshops, field study tours and exhibitions, Curating-In- Depth
will investigate initiatives in the field of contemporary curatorial practices. The project will address in particular the increasingly common trend of ‘parachuting curators’
that rely on minimum engagement with the local context in the curating process. The project also aims to strengthen Asia-Europe non-governmental institutional collaborations
and to confront evident challenges in the still neglected field of curating and mediating the arts.
Part 2 of Curating-in-Depth
will see the same group of curators, artists and critics meet in the Philippines in August 2015
, for another 2-week intensive exchange. Through this reciprocal mobility between Slovenia, Croatia and the Philippines
, the project aims to increase the knowledge sharing
on good practices for curating the contemporary visual arts. ASEF will also attend the opening of the NSK exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana on 11 May 2015.
is one of the 3 selected projects of Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe (4th Edition).
Project partners include SCCA, Centre for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana (Slovenia)
and Philippines based art center Planting Rice
, with the support of Croatian arts platform Kurziv.
