Maria Lind: About Rolling on Three Wheels
On Thursday 21st of November, from 6 pm Rupert is pleased to invite all to a talk by Maria Lind, ‘About Rolling on Three Wheels’ at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (‘Titanikas’ building, Room 112, Maironio str. 3).
In this talk, the world-renowned curator will present and discuss the function of curating, writing and teaching – ‘the three wheels’ – and how they interact in her work. Using three case studies – a series of exhibitions in Malmö, Mexico City, Zurich, Stockholm and Manchester, including, Abstract Possible (various locations), Tensta Museum at Tensta Konsthall and the 11th Gwangju Biennale – Maria Lind will delve into what over the years has evolved into a kind of methodology of curating.
