Independent Curators International Curatorial Intensive:

Independent Curators International Curatorial Intensive: Curating Performance at ICI

Independent Curators International MAP

Organized from November 13-22, 2011, the program will use Performa 11 as a platform to explore how curating performance art is being theorized and implemented today, including logistical and conceptual concerns arising from the commissioning, production, interpretation and documentation of performance art. Working with a faculty that includes leading artists, curators, and historians, by day the 10-14 selected participants will engage in a rigorous schedule of workshops, discussions, critiques, and advisement sessions to develop individual project proposals. Participants will also have special access to Performa 11 events, including Commissions, Premieres, Projects, and educational programs.

Teachers and advisors include Performa founding director and curator RoseLee Goldberg, Performa curator Mark Beasley, Claire Bishop, Associate Professor of Art History at the CUNY Graduate Center, and Klaus Biesenbach, Director, MoMA P.S. 1, and Curator at Large, MoMA.
