Vuk Vuković to Moderate "Curating Biennials: The Politics of Mediation" Panel

Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 3:30pm to 4:45pm

On Tuesday, February 1, 2022, from 3:30–4:45 PM EST, PhD student, Vuk Vuković will moderate "Curating Biennials: The Politics of Mediation," a panel organized by Paloma Checa-Gismero (Swarthmore College) and sponsored by the Society of Contemporary Art Historians (SCAH). "Curating Biennials" is a panel on the recent work of biennial curators Renata Cervetto (Berlin Biennale 11, 2020), Elia Alba (La Trienal – Estamos Bien, Museo del Barrio, 2020/2021), and Lauren Mackler (Made in LA 2020, Hammer Museum, 2021). Among other topics, the conversation will explore how contemporary biennial curatorial practice mediates between institution and audience, its role in the valuation of local knowledges and memories, and the ways in which artwork and artist selection engage with site-specific circumstances.
