Drawing on the emerging practices of so-called 'Open Journalism' – which seek to better collaborate with and use the ability of anyone to publish and share – #OpenCurating is a research project which will investigate how contemporary art projects may function beyond the traditional format of exhibition-and-catalogue. #OpenCurating
is concerned with new forms of interaction between publics – whether
online followers or physical visitors – with artworks and their
production, display and discursive context.
The project is articulated around a Twitter discussion moderated around the hashtag #OpenCurating; a series of ten new interviews with curators, artists, journalists and online strategists (to be published as a free digital edition), and a final event in Barcelona. (+ info...)
#OpenCurating was awarded the first BCN Producció 2012 Research Grant of the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona.
