Presentation Title:

  • BLISSFUL DIALOGUES: Common Ground for Curators



  • A series of dialogues between curators of new media art, and curators of contemporary art in general. These aim to tease out areas of common ground and compare useful experiences and methods. The context for the public dialogues will be an informal social setting involving a very nice cup of tea, and the chance for further discussion with the audience. The themes for the dialogues will include common interest in: collaborative curation; location, internationalism and festivals; and questioning networks, from artist/curator hybrids to self-organisation. CRUMB (The Curatorial Resource for Upstart Media Bliss), founded in 2000, is an online resource for those who curate, exhibit, organise, or archive new media art. CRUMB aims to share the knowledge with a professional and academic audience, though online discussion, face-to-face events, research and curatorial projects.
