Live coverage of "The Future Curatorial What Not 
and Study What? Conundrum," by Karen Archey

November 6-8, 2014

conversations, a new web platform for in-depth 
discussions pertaining to art and culture, will 
provide live coverage of "The Future Curatorial 
What Not and Study What? Conundrum," a symposium 
taking place at Bard College in 
Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, November 6 to 8. The 
symposium will feature presentations by an array 
of distinguished international curators and 
artists. Invited speakers include Nancy Adajania, 
Mélanie Bouteloup, Thomas Boutoux, Luis 
Camnitzer, Eddie Chambers, Nikita Yingqian Cai, 
Zasha Colah and Sumesh Sharma (Clark House 
Initiative), Common Practice New York (CPNY), 
Elvira Dyangani Ose, Galit Eilat, Annie Fletcher, 
Liam Gillick, Koyo Kouoh, Miguel A. López, Hans 
Ulrich Obrist, Tobias Ostrander, Joao Ribas, 
Sarah Rifky, Simon Sheikh, David Teh, What, How 
and for Whom, Jelena Vesiç and Vladimir Jeriç, 
Vivian Ziherl, and others. The moderators and 
respondents will be Lorenzo Benedetti, Suhail 
Malik, Paul O'Neill, Lucy Steeds, Jeannine Tang, 
and Mick Wilson.

Taking the contested discipline of curatorial 
studies as its subject, "The Future Curatorial 
What Not and Study What? Conundrum" asks "What 
futures?" there might be for curatorial practice. 
This is a question asked with deliberate 
intention to carry forward the various critical 
projects framed within curatorial production of 
the last two decades. 

Following her coverage of the Serpentine 
Extinction Marathon during Frieze Art Fair, 
critic and curator Karen Archey will provide live 
on-site coverage of the symposium for e-flux 
conversations. Commencing at 10am Thursday, 
November 6th, Archey's live coverage will 
document selected presentations and provide 
real-time commentary and images. In addition, 
during the event a host of invited commentators, 
including distinguished curators from around the 
world, will reflect on the proceedings on e-flux 
conversations. You can follow the live coverage
