Participants of the Curatorial Program for Research at Art Wednesday

On September 7, at 7 PM, IZOLYATSIA will host eight young curators from around the world, who will speak of their research in contemporary art and past projects. The presentation will be held as part of the Curatorial Program for Research (CPR).

The CPR project is the first residency programme for foreign curators in Ukraine. The project was initiated by the US-based curator Carmen Ferreyra. IZOLYATSIA is one of the three official partners of the CPR 2016: Eastern Europe, along with the Center for Contemporary Arts (Prague) and AIR Laboratory at the CCA Ujazdowski Castle (Warsaw). As part of the curatorial programme, the partner institutions will offer daily visits to artist studios and local arts institutions, complemented by readings about local socio-political history, arts, and culture.

The following curators will talk about their practice:
Melissa Aguilar (Colombia),
Rosanna del Solar (Peru),
Susanne Ewerlöf (Sweden),
Joseph Gergel (US/Nigeria),
Emma Hazen (US),
Pedro Portellano (Spain/Germany),
Mariana Rodríguez Iglesias (Argentina),
Alessandra Troncone (Italy).

The presentations will be followed by a concert by Kyiv music collectives starting at 9 PM.

The event will take place at 8 Naberezhno-Luhova Street, first floor.
