Curatorship in art does not merely refer to a profession for managing precisely a physical art space or putting together a particular art exhibition or an art event, but also carries with it a spectrum of underlying notions including a wealth of knowledge that is accumulated through time and experience, an awareness towards surrounding environment, an ability to draw on a versatile approach to perceive diverse cultural phenomena and strategies to convey corresponding interpretations.
This Lecture Series is designed to open up a window to the profession of curatorship, providing participants with a sophisticated view and an in-depth discussion towards the subjects centering upon and revolving around curatorship. The Series suggests ways, from a holistic angle, to comprehend the profession of curatorship and to apprehend the world from a curatorial perspective.
