Art Monthly Events

The Producers Part II: New Positions on Curating

Thursday 30 January 5.15pm
Ekaterina Degot, director of Steirischer Herbst in Graz, Austria
Bas Vroege, director of Paradox, Netherlands

This series of public discussions devised by Newcastle University and Art Monthly brings together curators, writers and artists to examine how current exhibition-making strategies have responded to significant changes in the art world. The talks will address issues such as: the fallout of an increasingly globalised art world; the growing significance of the role of collectors; the reshaping of public-sector art economies and the ways in which the development of new technologies has redefined how artworks are made, understood and disseminated.

Venue: Fine Art Lecture Theatre, Newcastle University
Price: Free entry
