Theoretical Phase: November4 – December 17 2020
Practical phase: First semester 2021

Online sessions – Wednesdays & Thursdays from 18-21h

The research group AGI (Art, Globalization, Interculturality) presents the eighth edition (2020-2021) of the training seminar ON MEDIATION, a theoretical and practical study program on curatorship addressed to artists, curators, critics, students, researchers, art historians and other collectives interested in the creation of exhibitions beyond disciplinary frameworks.

The ON MEDIATION/8 program is articulated in two interconnected stages: firstly, the theoretical phase, with lectures led by curators of recognized international experience, where different methodologies are identified in order to promote the curatorial practice towards a multidisciplinary scenario. Based on the theoretical sessions and the provided working materials, the participants will elaborate a proposal for a tutored exhibition project that will later be evaluated. The practical phase of the eighth edition of On Mediation will take the form of a Curatorial Workshop. Details will be provided soon.     In previous editions, the curatorial projects developed within the framework of the practical phase have been presented at La Escocesa (2019), Fabra i Coats (2018), Arts Santa Mònica (2017), àngels barcelona gallery (2016), ADN Platform (2015) and Cercle Artístic Sant Lluc (2014).
