curing media – the curator
serena bentley & joel Stern
Curated by Emile Zile
VIEW THE SPEAKERS VIA YOUTUBE HERE:
How do slippery art forms such as video gaming, contemporary music composition and performance art find their audiences? How do living forms become solid and thus become able to be represented? What are the challenges facing forward-looking curators to place contemporary cultural works in the canon? What role does a cultural gate-keeper play in the internet age of what’s been called the ‘amateurisation of everything’.
Serena Bentley (ACMI, ex-NGV) and Joel Stern (Liquid Architecture) join Experimenta Social #11 to discuss some recent case studies in their curatorial careers and to pry open the decision making that goes into their organisational methodologies.
