Landmark Exhibitions: contemporary art shows since 1968 brings together world-renowned artists, critics, curators, museum directors and scholars to identify and analyse key moments in the histories of exhibitions of the last forty years.
This two-day symposium argues that the exhibition, long overlooked as an epiphenomenon, is central to our understanding of contemporary visual cultures. Participants will discuss the (in)visibility of exhibitions, the proliferation of biennials, the exhibition as archive, the politics of curating, and the sitedness of exhibitions.
Speakers include Carlos Basualdo, Koen Brams, Guy Brett, Eric de Bruyn, Daniel Buren, Lynne Cooke, Chris Dercon, Walter Grasskamp, Reesa Greenberg, Hans Haacke, Nathalie Heinich, Vasif Kortun, Lucy Lippard, Sebastián López, Paul Maenz, John Rajchman, Suely Rolnik and Chin-Tao Wu.
Landmark Exhibitions is a collaboration between Tate Modern and Jan van Eyck Academie with the Royal College of Art and The London Consortium. Curated by Public Programmes in collaboration with Antony Hudek.
