Contemporary Art: Current Approaches
Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Lectures
Curator: Ekaterina Lazareva, Ph.D., curator of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
The third joint lecture cycle by Garage and New Holland Island brings together artists, curators, critics, and scholars who will discuss twenty-first-century art, its evolution over time, and the formats, conceptual approaches, and methodologies operating today.
It has now over fifty years since the emergence of contemporary art. Today, the logic of its history is increasingly abandoning modernist linearity, which explained the diversity of phenomena by a consistent gradual change in artistic movements. The eclectic picture of contemporary art at its “focal points” is complemented by the peripheral polyphony of differences, calling for a horizontal history of art rather than that which was written in the West. The variety of intellectual sources and critical approaches allows current agendas and various research optics to be addressed.
Science fiction and speculative geography, big narratives and slow activism, the underside of psychoanalysis and nonhuman agents: these and other intellectual and artistic horizons will be presented and discussed during this new lecture cycle as part of New Holland Island’s Open Lecture Hall program of educational events.
