Critical expansions in curating, its developing literature and promises run concurrent to our always-on conditions and the capitalised spectacle of contemporary art production, its institutions and circuits. With capacity to evolve through a rotating series of turns (social, educational, research, para-curatorial, locational), the ‘gift of the curatorial’ (Martinon) is seen to be an extension of curating towards immediate politics, developing socialities and instituting world-making futures. Punctuated by communalised, collaborative and collectivised working methods, artistic and curatorial practices have a potential to repurpose and nuance ‘meetings’ to foster new relations; revise existing registers and orders; conspire towards new organisational practices and institutional constructions and thus effect new modalities such as exhibition-making as research or redrafting our own constituencies. Concurrently, in the ever-decreasing division between labour and life, curating becomes entangled with the everyday busyness of contemporary art; nevertheless retaining the possibility to rehearse other conceptions such as adapting art’s institutions and the potential to recuperate projects. This invokes a need to interrogate how art and life is affected when working together, who togetherness excludes, what can be un/done, and for whom? This colloquy assembles researchers and practitioners who share an engagement with the developing discourse and praxis of curating.
