> DESCRIPTION

With the rapid growth of activity in the field of art since the 1960's and the associated rise of professionalized practices, a conflict of hierarchisation has emerged between artists, critics, and curators that necessitates a re-evaluation of authorship, mediation, and status value.

Taking Tyson Reeder's hyphenated artist-curator position as a jumping off point, Katerina Llanes, a graduate of the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies whose own practice lies somewhere between art, criticism, and curating, will lead a discussion on the shifting roles within contemporary art and the need to invoke agonistic pluralism as a way to de-stabilize any singular practice and embrace instead hybridity across platforms.

The conversation will center on Beatrice Von Bismarck's essay "Curatorial Criticality - On the Role of Freelance Curators in the Field of Contemporary Art" with additional readings by Maria Lind and Chantal Mouffe.
