Moonlight and Artworks: Thoughts on the Research of a Curator
17th of November
NODE Space, Hämeentie 135 C
Based on her experience as the director of Tensta konsthall, Maria Lind will discuss how research can be conducted as a curatorial practice. This entails focus on reading and writing as well as “learning by doing” and intensive exchange with art and artists – plus having dislocated staff meetings. Case studies such as Abstract Possible, The New Model and Tensta Museum: Reports from New Sweden will be brought up.
Maria Lind is the director of the Tensta Konsthall and an independent curator and writer interested in exploring the formats and methodologies connected with the contemporary art institution. She was the director of the graduate program at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College from 2008–2010 and is now the professor of artistic research at the Academy of Fine Art Oslo.
