Projects Curator Caimin Walsh will participate in the third iteration of Curatorial Directions, the MAC curatorial development programme, taking place across Belfast, Philadelphia and New York this month.
Set within the context of On Refusal: Representation & Resistance in Contemporary American Art, curated by the MAC Assistant Curator Clare Gormley, and featuring artists Paul Stephen Benjamin, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr, Aria Dean, Troy Michie, Arcmanoro Niles and Sable Elyse Smith, this year’s Curatorial Directions programme will draw on the exhibition’s core themes of resistance, social change and the collective conception of radical futures.
The programme invites eight emerging, early-career curators to engage in an intensive schedule of lectures, discussions, workshops and excursions examining certain key issues and ideas regarding contemporary curatorial practice around the theme of Art Making and Curating in Times of Crisis.
