News: FIELDWORK: Reports on Event Curating

FIELDWORK: REPORTS ON EVENT CURATING, was a three-day conversation to unpack the curatorial presentation of durational art work — namely: the event. 

FIELDWORK addressed the mechanics behind event production: the use of the event as a short-circuit within or an alternative to the space of exhibition production; the changing intentions of documentation in shaping the event, both prior to and as postscript; the role of curatorial qualifications and schooling in engendering customised knowledge about and established formats for the event; and the conflicts between the arrival of the event and the location in which it occurs.

With reports by international curators Isla Leaver-Yap, Fionn Meade, Sam Korman, Vivian Ziherl; and parallel conversations hosted by Gerrie Van Noord and Sarah Cook that explored the role of the event in local contexts, FIELDWORK examined the event as a space of circulation and becoming.
