Residencies Insights: The Curator as Meta-Artist. Modes of Curation in the Age of [Aesthetic] Uncertainty, lecture by Alfredo Cramerotti (Italy/United Kingdom), Curator-in-Residence

Description

In this lecture, Alfredo Cramerotti will discuss three curatorial projects which reflect different modes in which curatorial practice can function. Inspired by Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook’s Rethinking Curating. Art after New Media (The MIT Press, 2010), these three models are described as: 1) the iterative model, in which new projects grow around a selection of works of art or media, changing from venue to venue or from format to format; 2) the modular model, in which one embodiment of the project take places within a multilevel event structure, with the possibility to scale its elements up or down; 3) the broadcast model, where various people create their own infrastructure to circulate content (and the process of curating itself) under a regime of distributed responsibility. Arguing that these curatorial modes are hinged less on the “what” and more on the “how,” Cramerotti eventually defines the practice of working with a combination of these models as “acting as meta-artist.”
