Center for Curatorial Studies presents

CCS Bard Speakers Series : Paul O'Neill

The Exhibition-as-Medium, the Exhibition-as-Form:
Co-productive Exhibition-making and Attentiveness

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The group exhibition-form has become the primary site for curatorial experimentation and, as such, represents a relatively new discursive space around artistic practice. Paul O'Neill will look back at some of his exhibitions, and describe how cumulative and expanding exhibition-forms can constitute an investigation into how the curatorial role is made manifest through cohesive and co-operative exhibition-making structures applied during all stages of the exhibition production. This talk will demonstrate how exhibitions create spatial relations between different planes of interaction for the viewer, and how multiple agencies and actors are necessary for an understanding of the curatorial as a constellation of activities that can be can represented the final exhibition-form.

Dr. Paul O'Neill is a curator, writer and educator based in Bristol. Paul has co-curated more than fifty exhibition projects across the world.

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.
