Indisciplined Curation

6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Focusing on curatorial practices that do not fit neatly within discreet categories of fashion, art and design, the roundtable being held will discuss the process of curation across a variety of platforms and disciplines, from the three-dimensional spaces of the museum and gallery to the pages of magazines from the public sphere to online platforms, and from art to design practices. The panel investigates how the meaning of curation has drastically changed: how the term “curator” went from identifying the keeper of a collection to describing a wider range of activities across a variety of sites.

Chaired by Francesca Granata, assistant professor of Fashion Studies, in the School of Art and Design History and Theory, the roundtable participants includes:

  • Harold Koda, curator-in-Charge of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sarah Lawrence, an academic curator and dean of the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons the New School for Design
  • Sabrina Gschwandtner a New York based artist, writer and curator.
