Curatorial Practice, SaÅ¡a Nabergoj / SCCA, Centre for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana
30 September 2011, 19.00
SaÅ¡a Nabergoj will speak about alternative curatorial strategies, she had developed in the last two decades of her operation within the world of art. On the cases of Studio 6 program and World of Art, School for contemporary art, she will argue that curatorial and critical practice should come from the realm of interdisciplinary collaboration between artists, curators, critics and should be based on in-depth research and continuous monitoring of artistic production.
Since 2004 Studio 6 has been developing site specific actions and interventions in the Project Room SCCA in order to encourage discussions and establish constructive collaboration between diverse protagonists of the contemporary art world (artists, curators, critics, theorists), offer space for presentation of artistic actions and ensure their reflection.
The World of Art is the sole program in Slovenia and the broader region of Central, Eastern and Southern Europe aimed towards practical and theoretical education in the field of contemporary art. It comes out of a premise that future experts need and should be taught the skills and methods, along with gaining knowledge and insight into the critical and theoretical apparatus as all this should eventually help them when tackling the complex matter of the world of art.
SaÅ¡a Nabergoj works as a curator, writer, editor and lecturer in the field of contemporary art.
