Curating with Time


  • Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - 17:20

Part of the 2016 Jonathan Mills Lectures series.

The act of curation usually conjures images of earnest, scholarly types charged with cataloging, preserving and presenting precious objects or important archives.

In an age of information and the Internet, does the idea of curating remain firmly fixed on objects, or in space? Or can it include time-based activities such as music, opera, dance or theatre? Film or audio-visual installations?

Jonathan Mills proposes that we consider the temporal as well as spatial – the musical as well as visual – potential of the acts of keeping, preserving, archiving, curating. And urges us to consider a more active relationship within all of these activities, to explore their dynamic potential through programming and performance.
