Bice Curiger – C is for Curator, A Life in Art
Talk with Bice Curiger & Dora Imhof
Tuesday 24 May at 5.30pm
This biography by the art historian Dora Imhof illuminates the manifold activities of the curator, editor, and writer Bice Curiger. For the first time all of Curiger’s exhibitions are documented and analyzed in depth-from Frauen sehen Frauen (Zurich, 1975) to the 2011 Venice Biennale to her current projects at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles.
Curiger’s trajectory is contextualized within the history of curating, the globalization of the art world, and the institutionalization of contemporary art over the last four decades. Statements by leading artists and fellow curators provide personal insights into Bice Curiger’s thinking and ongoing work.
