Call for Papers | Curating, Care, and Community

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on June 11, 2020

From the British Art Network:

Curating, Care, and Community
Online Seminar, 3 September 2020

Proposals due by 26 June 2020

This online seminar will seek to explore how to care for others both within and beyond the curatorial community. The word curator derives from the Latin word curare, ‘to care’. Curators are charged with the physical and intellectual care of collections—the artworks, objects, and narratives found within cultural institutions. However, it is evident to the seminar organisers, a group of early career curators from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, that the concept of care within the sector must stretch beyond the guardianship of cultural heritage, to the care and concern for those everywhere. With this in mind, what role does ‘care’ play in a more holistic sense in a curators work? How do we care for each other, within both the institutional and local communities? Contributions are invited from across a range of disciplines, read the full abstract and find out more information here.
