September 17, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a conversation about the role of biennials in a growing list of alternative locations, and how they affect the global map of international biennials with four international curators: Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, Curator, El Museo del Barrio; Julia Herzberg, Curator and Art Historian; Emiliano Valdés, Associate Curator, Gwangju Biennial, and Chief Curator of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellin (London/Medellin); and Isabella Villanueva, Assistant Curator, Americas Society.

Program is presented as a part of a 2-day workshop at the Guggenheim and El Museo for young curators proposing projects for the Bienal de las Fronteras. Conceived as a public and participatory platform focusing on the most up-to-date and emerging concepts and expressions of the visual arts, the Biennial of the Frontiers seeks to become a space in which creation, analysis and dissemination of contemporary art explores the established frontiers of art practices in Mexico and abroad.

With the goals of promoting the creation of artworks and curatorial projects in Mexico and abroad, the Biennial of the Frontiers is building a platform for emerging artists and curators. Fostering the production of creative and innovative proposals in the field of visual arts, this Biennial intends to facilitate the dialogue, exchange and critical discussion of artistic practices today. For more information, visit www.bienaldelasfronteras.org/en/.

Immediately prior to the discussion at 6:00pm, we will host a special guided tour of PLAYING WITH FIRE: Political Interventions, Dissident Acts, and Mischievous Actions with guest curator Nicolas Dumit Estevez.
