What are the ethical rules of contemporary curating, and how should we define them? When and how can they be broken?
Peter Eleey is the Curator of MoMA PS1, where he most recently organized survey exhibitions of Lara Favaretto, Henry Taylor, and George Kuchar, as well as Darren Bader’s first museum show. Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of 9/11, he curated September 11, which was composed largely of work created prior to the attacks. From 2007-2010 he was Visual Arts Curator at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, where he organized shows with Trisha Brown and Goshka Macuga, in addition to the group shows The Quick and the Dead and The Talent Show. Prior to joining the Walker he was Curator & Producer at Creative Time in New York.
About The Speakers Series: Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum’s concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lectures are open to students and faculty, as well as to the general public, and will also be documented through video and/or audio recordings, which will reside in the CCS Bard Library and Archives.
