Affecting and Curating, Feeling the Curatorial
Whitechapel Gallery, London, Thursday January 19 2017
Wednesday, 11 January 2017
To mark the publication of a two-part issue on affect and curating in the Journal of Curatorial Studies, a special event ‘Affect and Curating, Feeling the Curatorial’ is being held at Whitechapel Gallery on Thursday January 19th 2017.
The event will bring together a range of speakers to consider how museums, galleries, art world events and artworks function as sites for the transmission of affects. If 'affect' operates independently from meaning, identity or thought, on the level of pre-conscious physical responses and resonances, how might focusing on it challenge and complicate understandings of curating and curatorial approaches?
The panel will consist of Journal of Curatorial Studies co-editors Jennifer Fisher, Helena Reckitt, Lisa Blackman and Nina Wakeford. Together they will be discussing the 'affective turn' in curating and society more broadly.
