Movement Research Studies Project: "Curatorial Approaches to Presenting Time-Based Art," at Gibney Dance Center. January 18, 2012.
This is a movement research studies project titled “Curatorial approaches to presenting Time-Based Art,” Moderated by Sam Miller (Founder, ICPP and President, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council). Panelists included Doryun Chong (Faculty, ICPP and Curator, MoMA) Judy Hussie-Taylor (Faculty, ICPP and Executive Director, Danspace Project), Jaamil Kosoko (Student, ICPP and Artist based in Philadelphia), and Ben Pryor (Student, ICPP and Curator/Producer based in New York). This event took place at Gibney Dance Center, January 18, 2012.
Faculty and students from the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (or the ICPP) at Wesleyan University engaged in a discussion about curatorial approaches to presenting time-based art. Founded in 2010, the ICPP brings together artists, curators, scholars, presenters and cultural leaders for an intensive, nine-month, low-residency academic program with instructors from Wesleyan, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Danspace Project, and the Walker Art Center.
Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
