From Practice to Infrastructures of Curating
by LU Pei-Yi
The research book of Contemporary Art Curating in Taiwan (1992-2012) will be the base of this talk to review and rethink the situation of curating in Taiwan. In the past three decades, the development of curating in Taiwan had been coming through the practice (exhibition making) to set up infrastructures. The diverse aspects of curating are discussed, such as searching on local exhibition history, seeing exhibition as cultural production and investing in the education. The recent announcement of international MA program Critical and Curatorial Studies of Contemporary Art (CCSCA) at National Taipei University of Education will be an example to expand thepossible future of exhibition practice and history in Taiwan
