Summer Meeting Spain
Exhibitions and seminars at Intermediae / MataderoMadrid around the issue of promotion and visibility in the arts.
Curators' Network celebrates a three-week long activity at Intermediae/MataderoMadrid between June 27 and July 14, 2013.
Between June 27 and July 14 2013 Curators’ Network organizes a showcase of the outcomes of its recent activities at Intermediae, at the Center for Contemporary Creation Matadero Madrid. Curators‘ Network seeks to give this event an eminently international focus, inviting both curators and artists who have participated in the various meetings of the network, as well as cultural agents who are interested in collaborating with us.
Curators’ Network will present itself during those three weeks of exhibitions, talks and discussions as a generator of new content and activities, a resource for intellectual discourse, attractive to members of the network, art professionals and general public.
“Let us be known; let us be seen, and let us shine”, takes its name from a press release for an exhibition of Fine Art Students of the University of Massachusetts, in 2009, titled “Shameless self-promotion”. Based on this title we seek to reflect with this event on the experience generated during the first three years of the network.
The activities that Curators’ Network proposes during the summer days in Madrid will put into practice our understanding of the role of the curator as an intermediary and facilitator whose prior task is to direct and guide collective creative processes.
The members of Austria, Hungary, Poland and Romania will issue three curated programs that issue alternative exhibition formats featuring artists, that have been participating at the activities of Curators’ Network since 2011. On the other hand, hablarenarte: as the host and Spanish organizer will lead three seminars that trigger panel talks, round tables and open discussions around issues that we have been repeatedly confronted with during our collaboration within the network.
