Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago
Terry Smith in Conversation with Mary Jane Jacob Thinking Contemporary Curating
Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Free with museum admission.

“Renowned art historian and critic Terry Smith discusses his book, Thinking Contemporary Curating, with Mary Jane Jacob, Executive Director of Exhibitions and Exhibition Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Thinking Contemporary Curating is the first book to offer an in-depth analysis of the volatile territory of international curatorial practice and the thinking—or insight—that underpins it. In five essays, Smith describes how today curators take on roles far beyond exhibition making, to include reimagining museums; writing the history of curating; creating discursive platforms and undertaking social or political activism, as well as rethinking spectatorship. A book signing follows their conversation.”
