Workshop: Alona Pardo – Curatorial Activism
26 November 2022 @ 10:00 - 27 November 2022 @ 18:00€350,00
Saturday, Nov 26 and Sunday, Nov 27 from 10am to 6pm
a workshop with Alona Pardo
Alona Pardo believes exhibitions play a vital role: to make manifest ideas through the agency of artistic practice and by extension curatorial practice. The collision between artistic and curatorial practices can activate processes and generate structures that facilitate a dialogical space, a space of negotiation between curators, artists and the
public, that hopefully allows for knowledge to form.
A two-day intensive workshop with Barbican curator Alona Pardo to explore the social function of curatorial practice and her idea of curatorial activism through examples and discussions. And to discover where ideas come from.
Alona Pardo has been a Curator at Barbican Art Gallery in London for over 15 years. With a focus on photography and film, she has curated and edited numerous exhibitions and publications including Masculinities: Liberation through Photography (2020); Trevor Paglen: From Apple to Anomaly (2019); Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing (2018);
Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds (2018); Another Kind of Life: Photography on the Margins (2018); Richard Mosse: Incoming (2017) and Strange and Familiar: Britain as seen by International Photographers (with Martin Parr; 2016). She has a particular interest in work that exists in the intersection between activism, aesthetics and identity.
