Critical Regionalism and the Making of Manifesta 12
Presentation at MIARTALKS 2018
Saturday, 14 April 12.30 – 2pm
To what extent can an international art event work as a social, economic and political experiment? And how curatorial strategies should evolve in order to meet expectations and desires of local communities, but also to leave a last-longing legacy in a foreign territory? Elaborating on their own experiences in working in Palermo, Manifesta 12 Director and Creative Mediators will discuss the issues arising from the relation between the local and the international, and will explain how these issues have informed the selection of the artists involved in the 2018 biennial.
