Description

Globalization, national identity, and immigration have been important lenses for exhibitions of contemporary art in the past two decades. In his work at Center for Contemporary Art in Glasgow, the van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands, and in his research at the Goldsmiths Centre for Research Architecture in London, curator Remco de Blaaij has worked intensively on these issues through such projects as presenting a Picasso painting in Ramallah. Join de Blaaij in conversation with Maria del Carmen Carrion, Independent Curators International’s Associate Director of Public Programs and Research, about his current investigations of women’s activist practices in the countries of Guatemala, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Suriname.

Cosponsored by Independent Curators International.
