> DESCRIPTION

Iván Argote & Pauline Bastard present Born to Curate, a live curatorial battle that pits four teams of Los Angeles-based curators head to head in a fast-paced game of wit and knowledge. Structured like a game show, teams have two minutes to conceptualize a curatorial project or exhibition in response to a theme picked at random. Inverting the largely private curatorial process into a public event, ideas behind the construction of meaning are infused with open response and humor. Winners are determined by an applause meter and receive the coveted Born to Curate trophy.

Mario Ybarra Jr. as Master of Ceremonies; Curators include Jarrett Gregory (LACMA), Patrick Steffen (Flash Art), Miki Garcia (Santa Monica Contemporary Arts Forum), Shamim Momin (LAND), Mark Allen (Machine Project), Chris Kallmyer (Independent artist), Bill Kelley, Jr. (18tj Street Arts Center & Otis) and others.

This exhibition is part of Ceci n’est pas… Art Between France & Los Angeles(http://cnp-la.org/)
