I will be moderating a roundtable discussion called ‘Who Needs Curators?’ as part of Sindikat Kurator di Penang.
Sindikat Kurator di Penang is a 2-day curatorial forum stemmed from the Sindikat Campursari exhibition under the umbrella project of Condition Report organised by the Japan Foundation Asia Center, which took place from 14 January to 14 February 2017 at the Gudang Sarinah Ekosistem, Jakarta. 4 curators from Vietnam, Thailand, Japan and Malaysia who were involved in the project will regroup in Penang to reflect on the Sindikat Campursari exhibition, their participation on the Japan Foundation Asia Center curators workshop, and how this programme has influenced their individual curatorial practice.
They will be joined by local curators, art historians, cultural practitioners and visual artists to further explore issues related to curatorial practice within localized contexts. This forum will kick start with sharing sessions by curators from different backgrounds on the first day, followed by a curator-artist speed dating and two sessions of roundtable discussions on the second day.
