What Can Art...?

  • Event Cost:
    Free

The IMA is pleased to present a talk by Charles Esche, Director of the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This is the forth presentation in a series of talks running throughout the year titled What Can Art Institutions Do?

Esche has been a leading voice in curatorial practice for two decades, and has been directing the Van Abbemuseum since 2004. In 2014, Esche was awarded Bard College’s Audrey Irmas Award for Curatorial Excellence. The prize honors multiple things including his endless commitment to rethinking what art can do and redefining what it can be. Esche has been involved in exhibitions such as Strange and Close at CAPC, Bordeaux (2011); An Idea for Living at the U3 Slovene Triennale (2011); the 2nd and 3rd RIWAQ Biennials in Ramallah, Palestine (2007/2009); the 9th International Istanbul Biennial (2005); and the 4th Gwangju Biennale, Republic of Korea (2002). He curated the 31st Sao Paulo Bienale which opened in the autumn of 2014.

This event is free for IMA members. Suggested donation for non-members is $5.

Esche’s lecture has been generously supported by the Australia Council for the Arts.
