Catastrophe and The Contemporary Lecture Series: Curatorial Development Exhibition program

28 September 2021 - 7 December 2021
18:00 - 20:00

Future Perfect brings together curators, artists, and scholars to flesh out the contemporary along a Möbius strip of past and future, distance and proximity, absence and presence, catastrophe and creation, displacements and condensations of time and space in the historical landscape of modernity. How might we think, produce, and exhibit the contemporary in modernity and vice-versa? -- towards social and political justice through aesthetic invention and intervention?

Workshops - How To Love Many In Many Ways

Workshops

How To Love Many In Many Ways

16 October 2021
21:00 - 23:00

Departing from the desire to find different ways in which we can connect with one another, How To Love Many In Many Ways was born while experiencing different moments of on-again-and-off-again home confinement. This affected the structure of the project, as we started to look deeper into the notions of mutual care and ‘love’ in the expanded sense of the word. What, for instance, could love beyond romantic or familial relations mean? What would love beyond friendships look like? And how does love to non-human beings manifest?

Short Courses - Writing the Exhibition Review

Short Courses

Writing the Exhibition Review

30 November 2021 - 8 December 2021
18:00 - 20:00

Writing the Exhibition Review is a course that peels away the layers of the piece of writing we commonly refer to as a ‘review.’ Although liberally used, it is a slippery term, indexing varying reader expectations, presenting a cascade of challenges for writers. How critical should it be? How informative? What value does the artist or curator profile add? Is there any room for institutional critique?
