Modernism and the Global Diaspora isn’t the most striking title for a talk I’ve ever heard, but the description sounds interesting. From the press release:
On December 1, School of Visual Arts brings a group of critics, curators and artists together for a conversation about…changing terrain of contemporary art in light of internationalism, moderated by SVA faculty member and former Whitney Museum of American Art director David Ross. The panelists include: Thelma Golden, executive director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem; Hou Hanru, the director of exhibitions and public programs at the San Francisco Art Institute; Susan Hefuna, an artist based in Egypt and Germany and Vasif Kortun, the director of the Platform Garanti Contemporary Arts Center in Istanbul.
If we were in town, we’d be at that lecture. Speaking of which, Art Basel Miami coverage will begin tomorrow afternoon, assuming no catastrophes occur between then and now. Of course, there’s always a chance we’ll spot the famed art fair locusts/hermaphrodite twins Eva and Adele before that time, in which case readers will have meaningless blog fodder to contemplate.
