Managing Curatorial Risk – Live Webinar

18 Nov 2020.

Session 2 of Curating Safe Practices: The 2020 Curatorial Intensive

‘Managing Curatorial Risk’

Date: Wednesday 18 November

Time: 2:30-3:30pm (including 15 minutes of Q&A)

This live webinar introduces a new resource developed by NETS Victoria and Museums and Galleries of NSW (MGNSW) aimed to assist with curatorial risk management. The session will reflect upon exhibitions’ intent to incite conversation, new ideas and debate, while asking the question – what happens when exhibitions contain content that could be perceived to be controversial, provocative or have the potential to offend certain members of the community, audience or stakeholder groups? This session investigates ‘Conflict In My Outlook’ a current exhibition curated by Anna Briers which navigated this type of curatorial risk and brings together Chair Adam Harding, Director of CCP and Chair of NETS Victoria’s Artistic Program Advisory Committee; Presenters Anna Briers, Curator, University of Queensland Art Museum; Artist Xanthe Dobbie; and Rachel Arndt, Gallery Programs and Touring Exhibitions Manager, MGNSW. Join in to hear how the art community can express themselves freely, explore sensitive topics and push boundaries to incite meaningful conversations, while managing the risk process. This webinar will be live captioned.
