Ellie Buttrose: Curating and Collaborating
12 September in S07_1.23 | 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Ellie is Associate Curator of International Contemporary Art at QAGOMA and was a member of the curatorial team for Cosmopolis #1 at Centre Pompidou, Paris, held 18 October - 18 December 2017. She will talk about research-based collective practices in relation to this exhibition.
Cosmopolis #1 is "a new platform for the exploration of artistic practices based on the gaining and sharing of knowledge and nourished by their engagement with the social, urban and political issues of today. The exhibition looked at collaborative practices and artists collectives, in Asia, Africa and Latin America more particularly. The exhibition included screenings, installations and performances of new works. At its heart was a programme of live events that seeks interaction with the public: discussions, talks, readings, debates and performances." (from the Centre Pompidou website)
