Talks: Borderline

Art institutions in conversation: the Talks program of viennacontemporary

Talks: Borderline offers a program of public talks in which leading representatives of the international art scene share their ideas and insights. Curated by Kate Sutton, this year’s theme, Borderline, focuses on the comprehensive changes that European cultural institutions face on a political, social, and cultural level, as seen from the perspectives of artists, art historians, international collectors, museum directors, dealers, critics, and curators.

This series of conversations, panel discussions and presentations will look at people and projects seizing on the sudden structural flexibility and working to push the borders of institutions from within: from collectors experimenting with different formats for patronage, to galleries testing out new models for commercial collaboration, to artists, curators, and critics weighing the moral and ethical implications of activism and critique within the larger infrastructure of the globalized art world.

The Talks program takes place on Friday, 22 September 2017, on Saturday, 23 September 2017, and on Sunday, 24 September 2017, each from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm in the Talks Area.

Further details will be announced soon.
