We’re all busy bees around here, trying to make sure everything is all set for the People’s Conference.
Bottles of water for speakers? Check. Cookies for the tea on Friday which will precede the conference? Check. AV request in for Sharpless Auditorium? Check. Heaps of excitement to see Harrell Fletcher, co-creator of one of my favorite relational aesthetics projects, Learning to Love You More? Check!
Vast quantities of anticipation to hear from Jens Hoffmann, curator of the 12th International Istanbul Biennial? Check!
As you can see, Harrell and Jens, the co-curators, both do fascinating and very different things when it comes to art. I can’t wait to hear how their differing experiences in the “art world” impacted their curatorial decisions as they shaped The People’s Biennial, a show designed to consider art by artists operating outside conventional frameworks of fine arts.
Yep, seems like we’re in pretty good shape for the Biennial. Now all we need is you!
