On January 12 PAVILION UNICREDIT hosted a lecture by Niels Van Tomme, with the title The Aporia of Curating, within the frame of the exhibition Melancholy is not enough….
Instead of installing concepts with certainty and curatorial authority, what would result in introducing doubt and hesitation as the ruling principles of exhibition making? What kind of knowledge can be acquired from such a skeptical curatorial position? Does it mean that the exhibition will necessarily collapse into itself, or are there other modes of exhibition making, and experiencing, attainable?
Niels Van Tomme is a New York based curator, researcher, and critic. Most recently, he curated the exhibition “Where Do We Migrate To?”, which premiered at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture in Baltimore and will travel to Parsons The New School of Design in New York, the CAC in New Orleans, and the Rubin Center for Visual Arts in El Paso. He is a Contributing Editor of Art Papers and publishes internationally in journals, magazines, and exhibition catalogues. Van Tomme is currently co-editing the book Aesthetic Justice, forthcoming from Antennae Series by Valiz, Amsterdam, in 2012.
