Terry Smith Interview in Revista Da Historia De Arte

Revista da História de Arte is published by the Instituto de Historia de Arte at the Universidad Nova de Lisboa, Portugal. Issue # 14 (2019) is devoted to “The Exhibition: Histories, Practices, and Politics.” Its lead article is a long interview with Terry Smith conducted—in the gardens of the Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum, Lisbon—by Spanish art historian Carlos Garrido Castellano. Entitled “What is to be Done? Contemporary Currents, The Exhibitionary Complex, and Activist Curating,” the discussion explores in depth Smith’s theories of contemporary art, and his ideas about curatorial practice within the institutions and quasi-institutions of the contemporary art world.
