Alternative Mapping (RHB 137)

The session will explore our drive to ‘make sense’ of things we know and those we don’t. Starting from the very notion of curating as: organising / scouting / selecting / taking care of / making space for / creating links between, I have developed over the last couple of years a pinterest stream that attempts to ‘map the mapping’: http://www.pinterest.com/alcramer/alternative-mapping/. There are about 330 ‘alternative maps’ on this stream – from the downright bizarre obsession to the most thorough and scientific charting approach one can think of; from kitchen utensils to animal tracks. The session will open up a discussion about our drive to map, need to map, desire to map and, ultimately, what is mapping all about: has the map exceed (finally!) the territory? Has the mapping outgrown the mappable?

 

 

Dublin Contemporary 2011: Panel discussion

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on October 26, 2011

Panel Discussion

29 October 2011, at 5:30pm

Lecture Theatre 2, Dublin Contemporary, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2

Jeffrey Swartz (Art Critic) will chair a panel discussion with Alfredo Cramerotti (Director, Mostyn), Jose Falconi (Curator, Latin American Art Forum), Oxana Maleeva (Curator, Art Apart), William Morrow (Director, 21C Museum), Kathy Noble (Curator, Tate Modern), Steve Picolo (Artist) on Saturday the 29th of October at 5.30 pm in Lecture Theatre 2.

The talk will be titled: ‘Occupy Curating? Politics, Protests and the Future of Curatorial Practice’ and will ask the question whether curatorial content can be artist generated, or even viewer-generated, in the same way that democracy could be generated by the creative individuals, or just regular individuals, who happen to live in it.
