The Galleries at Moore in conjunction with Moore College of Art and Design’s BFA in Curatorial Studies present “Curating and Activism,” the fourth in an ongoing series of public conversations about issues and ideas in contemporary curatorial practice. Through a series of grouped conversations with an international roster of distinguished panelists, we will examine multiple ways in which curatorial activities can be directed toward social and political activism.

Questions to be considered include: How effectively is social/political activism addressed through curatorial practice? What are the power dynamics involved in curating for social change? What is a curator’s responsibility in articulating his/her political stance? Are forums for public interaction inherently political? How is participation related to activism? What are the stakes in activist curating and what are the criteria for success? Can curatorial practice truly inspire productive political change?
