Curation has become a buzz word not just in the visual art world but in programming, merchandising, scholarly circles, and, of course, within dance. We encourage artists to co-opt manipulate, and critique the idea of curation in whatever way excites them.
This Short&Sweet will take place at the same time as the Art Curator’s Association of Quebec’s “Envisioning the Practice” conference, which looks at Performing Arts Curation. We’ve got a great line up of artist / curators and surprises from out of town who are here for the symposium. We’re excited about this one!
Andrew is continuing to perform in More than Naked by choreographer Doris Ulhich….An amazing project bringing together 20 artists from all over the world, the piece attempts to bring to the stage nakedness free of ideology and provocation. The work was recently performed to enthousiatic audience and critical response in Vienna and Frankfurt with more International dates to be announced soon.
