The next Knowledge Exchange Lecture will be:
THE CURATORIAL AS CONSTRUCTIVE BORDER-WORK
THURSDAY (19TH OF MAR) AT 16h00-17h00, RHB 355 (GOLDSMITHS)
Contemporary art can be characterised by a set of logics that are structurally homologous to those found in the politics of localism and horizontality, and therefore, in my restricted description of it, lacks a capacity to construct a positive project of verticality. My research makes claims for the “curatorial” as a field not just of academic study, but a space of action, organisation and political emancipation that enables a synthetic process of construction to occur.
Tom Trevatt (b. 1981) is a PhD researcher in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths. He is a writer, lecturer and curator.
