The association is pleased to present “Réalités du commissariat d’exposition”, a book produced under the direction of C-E-A / French Association of Curators.
The emergence of independent curators is a reflection of profound structural changes in the economy and in relations between actors in the world of contemporary art. “Réalités du commissariat d’exposition” wishes to approach the critical axes of a practice all the more complex that it evolves in an environment in a state of theoretical crisis, which constantly takes its own protagonists of speed. Combining contributions and current events, this book presents the analyzes of curators as well as observers from the human sciences. Thus, a multifaceted commissioner emerges, whose versatility and doubts, in complex professional and ethical situations, become the marker of the evolutions of a whole cultural sector.
With the contributions of: Sophia Krzys Acord, Christian Besson, Beatrice von Bismarck, Laurent Jeanpierre, Pablo Lafuente, Isabelle Mayaud, Pedro Neves Marques, Stewart Martin, Manuel Segade and Séverine Sofio.
And the testimonials of: Antonia Alampi, Nicolas Bourriaud, Michel Gauthier, Raphaele Young, Sebastien Gokalp, Charlotte Laubard and Emilie Renard.
