The CURATING ON THE WEB — WEBINAR aims to stimulate and expand critical and practical thinking about curatorial work on the web. The webinar will focus on curatorial interventions online that challenge the mechanisms and traditional models of producing and displaying contemporary art; offering a historical overview and new perspectives and ways of imagining the system of contemporary art and ‘being online’.

Over the course of 2 days (29-30 April), there will be a series of presentations and discussions moderated by the event organisers, and talks by guest speakers who will discuss their work and projects:  ZHANG Ga (US) / Guido Segni (Green Cube Gallery) (IT) / Aarushi Surana and Kaushal Sapre (IN) / Virginie Tan and Astrid Lours-Riou (FR) / Guildor (IT) / Nimrod Vardi and Rebecca Edwards (arebyte Gallery) (UK)
With the intent to nurture cross-cultural exchanges and discourses in the field of digital curation, the webinar will also examine the role of curating on the web in confronting structural transformations and moments of systemic crisis.
