More information on the EUROPEAN CURATORIAL FUTURES program

In partnership with Paris 8 University, C-E-A is organizing a study day on 13 March as part of this EUROPEAN CURATORIAL FUTURES research program, with the support of the France-Romania season.

The cycle “Exhibition Writing Research” is born from the collaboration between a professional association of curators (C-E-A) and a university laboratory (Laboratory EA 4010: Image Arts and Contemporary Art (AIAC), University Paris 8). It aims to question the exhibition and its research as a writing operation, raising the situations of transition and transgression that it can arouse. It invites artists, critics, curators, academics for meetings, conference-workshops and exhibition experiments. It takes place at the Cité internationale des arts from winter 2018 to spring 2019. After a first day organized by the University Paris 8 in collaboration with Ensadlab – Displays, on December 17, 2018, this 2nd day is also part of as part of the EUROPEAN CURATORIAL FUTURES program to open our reflection on curatorial practices in artistic research and training. Our wish is to analyze the contemporary contexts of the curatorial activity in the broad sense, but also to develop a prospective approach. To consider a line of work that could enrich the reflection and experimentation on the articulation of artistic practice / curatorial practice at the level of research and training.
