Curatorial Correspondents

FRONT has established an ongoing dialog with ten Curatorial Correspondents from around the world. These curators served as consulting partners in developing the conceptual framework of the program. They will be invited to the opening week of FRONT to engage in public curatorial dialogs with artistic director, Michelle Grabner, the curatorial co-conspirators and artists.

There are no more unfamiliar art worlds. There are only degrees of unfamiliarity.



In recent years I have seen how biennials have changed the discourse of curating by utilizing and shifting the site of the exhibition itself as model.
