Deadline for applications: 30 April 2013
The Institute of Contemporary Art is organizing in collaboration with Eastern European Performing Arts Platform the 7th edition of the Summer Seminars for Art Curators, from August 12 to 18 in Yerevan, Armenia on the following topic: "To Perform And To Curate: Between Two Practices of Constitution".
Given the growing examples of curating performative practices internationally, the 7th edition of the Summer Seminars for Art Curators in 2013 invites applicants to join the organizers in exploring the double notion of performativity, on the example of curatorial practices: curating as a constitutive practice that deals with desires, identities, subjectivities as well as curating performance art—a practice that has emerged and institutionalized in the sphere of multidisciplinary art only recently. The organisers would like to investigate the intersections of the two modes of performativity and some of the possible emancipatory implications of such intersections.
The Summer Seminars invites art theoreticians, artists and curators of various artistic disciplines to discuss different performative practices both inside and outside of the boundaries of art institutions. The program combines lectures with seminar discussions and performative events.
The Seminars are free of charge. The participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
To apply, please send your application that includes a CV, a statement of interest and a writing sample to Harutyun Alpeyan to the following address email@example.com by April 30th, 2013.
