Independent Curators International and New Museum present The Curator’s Perspective: A Conversation with Bisi Silva
May 9 2010
ICI (Independent Curators International) has developed its first touring curatorial conversation in the U.S. with Bisi Silva, an independent curator and the founder/director of the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria. At the New Museum the conversation will explore the growing impact of transnational practice, using Silva’s extensive curatorial experiences across Africa, Asia, and Europe as a starting point for discussion. Looking at the potential for new dynamic forms of exhibition-making and cultural exchange, Silva will present her research into artists, as well as her perspectives on the expansion of curatorial networks and emerging collaborative institutional models around the world. ICI’s executive director Kate Fowle will moderate.
