Book Launch & Conversation: Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective

About this event
Book now

In the framework of the exhibition Mario García Torres: Illusion Brought Me Here, WIELS hosts a panel discussion on the occasion of the release of Nathalie Zonnenberg’s publication Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization and Documentation, published by Valiz. The result of Zonnenberg’s PhD research, this publication focuses on the curatorial practice of exhibiting conceptual art. The fact that conceptual artworks are not object-based creates challenges in exhibiting or re-exhibiting them. How can we deal with these challenges and the paradox of conceptual art? These questions and more will be addressed during this event.

With author Nathalie Zonnenberg, curator Marja Bloem, and artist Yuki Okumura. Moderated by WIELS curator Caroline Dumalin

Organized in collaboration with Valiz and Curatorial Studies, KASK, Ghent
