Inspired, in part, by Tania Bruguera's workshop with the Discursive and Curatorial Productions initiative, Grant Kester’s talk will reflect on certain limitations in current models of art criticism as they relate to "dialogical" or participatory art practices.

Professor Grant Kester is one of the leading figures in the emerging critical dialogue around “relational” or “dialogical” art practices.

 

The Discursive & Curatorial Productions Initiative is designed for critical dialogue and experimentation in curatorial and discursive practices, with workshops for research into art practice, the aesthetics of materialization, and the cognitive and pedagogical potential of aesthetics.
