On Thursday, 7 August, Stuart Ringholt will be in conversation with Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, a renowned curator who has worked closely with Ringholt on a number of occasions.

Christov-Bakargiev is Visiting Professor in Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University, Illinois, USA, and was Artistic Director of dOCUMENTA (13), which took place in Kassel, Germany, and extended to workshops, seminars and exhibitions in Alexandria, Egypt; Kabul, Afghanistan; and Banff, Canada. Her stewardship of dOCUMENTA (13) renewed one of the exhibition’s principal intentions, to enlist culture as an agent of reconstruction, healing and dialogue. For the 14th Istanbul Biennial, in keeping with her Documenta strategy of hiring agents to advise on the show—she will draft the exhibition with help from various artists, curators and others: ‘seeking the artistic advice of Cevdet Erek, the intellectual rigor of Griselda Pollock, the sensitivity of Pierre Huyghe, the curatorial imagination of Chus Martinez, the mindfulness of Marcos Lutyens, the acute gaze of Füsun Onur, the political philosophies of Anna Boghiguian, the youthful enthusiasm of Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran, the wise uncertainties of William Kentridge and manifold qualities and agencies to come as the process develops’.

Previously Christov-Bakargiev was Artistic Director of the 16th Biennale of Sydney (2008) and Chief Curator at the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art (2002- 08). She was also a Senior Curator at PS1 Contemporary Art Center—a MoMA affiliate in New York from 1991-2001. Her books include William Kentridge (1998), Arte Povera (1999), and for dOCUMENTA (13) the 100 Notes–100 Thoughts series as well as The Book of Books (2011–12). Previous group exhibitions include The Moderns, Turin (2003), Faces in the Crowd, London and Turin (2004), Citta’ Natura, Rome (1997), and Molteplici Culture, Rome (1992).

Capacity is limited.
