December 16, 2010.</small> What is the role of the curator? What do curators do, and how do they engage with artists, space, institutions, and audiences? What kinds of research into artists and their work do curators conduct? What are the concepts and models that they use in the making of exhibitions? This program, co-produced with the Mohile Parikh Center in Mumbai, examined an evolving definition of contemporary curatorial practice, shaped by institutional professionals, independent curators, and artists. Different curatorial models including solo and group exhibitions, film series, archives, and commissions will be considered and various contexts such as the museum, galleries or festivals were examined. With group discussion, the local curatorial context was also mapped and explored.
