Art Fund Curatorial Seminar at fig-2: In Pursuit of the Curatorial: Instituting the Social

22 Jan 2015

As part of the collaboration between fig-2 and the Art Fund, fig-2 will be hosting eight public seminars, conceptualised by Art Fund Curator Fatos Ustek.

This eight-part seminar series will explore the curatorial pursuit and eloquence of expression in curating today. Inspired by the structure of fig-2, changing the rules of display of ideas weekly, if not daily, the artist changes every week. The exhibition is not a singular presentation of works or a consistent message, but is instead composed of several constellations, each revealing how one object put next to another could provoke different readings of both. Each seminar will concentrate on one theme in particular with assigned reading announced in advance on the website, and will be led by Fatos Ustek.

The first of an eight-part seminar series, Instituting the Social will start by addressing the concepts studied by Cornelius Castoriadis, activating the understanding of institutions, and their relationship to the construction of the social imaginary.
