Student Forum: State of Encounter

18 Jan 2013

Using the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2012 exhibition as a starting point, a panel of speakers will discuss the challenges curators encounter when exhibiting emerging artists as part of a group show. The talk explores the process of planning and bringing together work that may not be linked thematically and raises questions about how to overcome spatial and contextual issues.
