Featured Event

March 2013
Panel discussion: 'What Does Art Do: The Production of Knowledge in a Globalised Cultural Economy'

In recent years we have seen the emergence of an institutional and curatorial demand that calls upon artists across the Middle East and North Africa to represent social change and revolutionary conflict in the region for global consumption. This panel, led by Dr. Anthony Downey, discussed how artistic production is also subjected to the demands of new media and art journalism. The speakers explored how cultural practices capitalise and negotiate these very demands and, in turn, questioned institutional and curatorial priorities.

 

Panel members include: Zeina Arida, Director, Arab Image Foundation; Dr Anthony Downey, Director of the Masters Programme in Contemporary Art at Sotheby's Institute of Art, & Editor, Ibraaz (moderator); Nat Muller, Curator and Critic; Michael Rakowitz, Artist and Associate Professor at Northwestern University in Chicago; and Payam Sharifi, Co-Founder of Slavs and Tatars.
