"Latitudes in conversation with Yasmil Raymond", Tuesday 19 February 2013, 19:30h, Auditori MACBA, Barcelona.
Free admission. Limited seating. With simultaneous translation.
The conversation with Yasmil Raymond, Curator at Dia Art Foundation
in New York, will address Dia's historical identity, the evolving role
of the curator, and Raymond's vision in commissioning and preserving art
projects that exceed the limits normally available within the museum.
The evening will incorporate "crowd-sourced" questions previously solicited via Twitter (hashtag #OpenCurating) and Facebook.
This event is part of Latitudes' ongoing #OpenCurating research, which analyses the implications of Web 2.0, participation and transparency for contemporary art production and programming.
The core of #OpenCurating is formed through a series of interviews with artists, writers and curators, freely available via Latitudes' website, most recently with Steven ten Thije (Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven) and Badlands Unlimited (New York).
