PuSh Festival’s Curatorial Conversation

January 26, 2011

Friday, January 28 at 2-3:30pm 
Location: SFU Woodward’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema

Act of Curation is an exploration of what artistic vision is, how it is interpreted and implemented from the perspective of the Push International Performing Arts Festival – a city-wide festival dedicated to presenting contemporary and interdisciplinary works. 

What key curatorial considerations and criteria are at play in its selection or commissioning of each festival edition? How does it provoke Vancouver’s artistic community? Who is its audience? How much risk is enough? How does it want to evolve in the next few years? How does Vancouver stand up as a creative milieu vis a vis the international context?

These are just a few of the many topics to be discussed.

Please join us this Friday, January 28 at 2pm for this animated discourse featuring:

PuSh Executive Director Norman Armour, Senior Curator Sherrie Johnson and Associate Curator Dani Fecko moderated by SFU Woodward’s Director of Cultural Programs, Michael Boucher .
Q&A will follow.
