Importance of art
A presentation by curator Tijana Mišković
In my presentation at the Art School in Holbæk I wish to give an introduction to my curatorial praxis by showing artwork examples from seminars and exhibitions, which I have been curating with focus on artistic expressions pertinent to current issues.
I will show artworks by artists I have been working with and who each with their different methods try to create art of importance to the world we live in. What does it mean that an artwork is relevant and important? How can an artist aesthetically express and communicate about important issues?
These questions will lead me to reflection regarding artists’ role in society; something I find very essential for my current curatorial work produced for COPENHAGEN ULTRACONTEMPORARY BIENNALE.
During the presentation the students will get an impression of my curatorial field of interest as well as an insight in different theoretical and practical stages in curatorial work, from the conceptualization, over creation of new exhibition platforms to development of communication strategies.
