CURATING AND ACTIVISM:
AN INTERNATIONAL PANEL AND CONVERSATION
SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 2009 9:30 am-5 pm

Moore College of Art & Design
20th and the Parkway/Philadelphia, PA 19103-1179
www.thegalleriesatmoore.org

The Galleries at Moore in conjunction with Moore College of Art and
Design’s BFA in Curatorial Studies present “Curating and Activism,”
the fourth in an ongoing series of public conversations about issues
and ideas in contemporary curatorial practice. Through a series of
grouped conversations with an international roster of distinguished
curators and artists, we will examine multiple ways in which
curatorial activities can be directed toward social and political
activism. Questions to be considered include: How effectively is
social/political activism addressed through curatorial practice? What
are the power dynamics involved in curating for social change? What is
a curator’s responsibility in articulating his/her political stance?
Are forums for public interaction inherently political? How is
participation related to activism? What are the stakes in activist
curating and what are the criteria for success? Can curatorial
practice truly inspire productive political change?

This program is free and open to the public. Pre-registration via
e-mail is requested. Please RSVP by 3/24: jkaplan@moore.edu
