A talk with Terry Smith, author and professor of Contemporary Art History and Theory in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh.
Thinking Contemporary Art; Curating Contemporaneity
For over a decade, US-based, Australian art historian Terry Smith has argued that artists, architects, curators and art theorists have been responding to the nature of contemporary reality in terms of its definitive quality, its differential contemporaneity. He discusses the key ideas underlying his widely read and often controversial books, including: What Is Contemporary Art? (2009), Contemporary Art: World Currents (2011) and Thinking Contemporary Curating (2012).
