Author and art historian Terry Smith will be in conversation with Paul O’Neill, author of The Culture of Curating and the Curating of Culture(s) (2012) and Director of the Graduate Program, Center for Curatorial Studies, at Bard College. Having both recently published the only book-length essays to map out contemporary curatorial practices, Smith and O’Neill will discuss trends in curatorial thought in a rapidly evolving international field. As part of the ongoing research and conversations related to his recent publication, Thinking Contemporary Curating (2012), Smith has been speaking with preeminent curators and art historians, including Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Sofia Hernández Chong Cuy, Jens Hoffmann, Mary Jane Jacob, Julian Myers, Maria Lind, Mami Kataoka, and Zdenka Badovinac. This is the seventh public presentation in the series of conversations that will lead to Thinking Contemporary Curating Volume 2.
