YU presents an evening with Suzanne Cotter, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation Curator for the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Project
. It's the first in a series of talks by national and international arts leaders engaged in developing contemporary institutions outside established art centers.
"Cotter's extensive experience has given her a transnational perspective on the work of contemporary artists and what it means to curate visionary exhibitions and public programs within specific regional contexts and cultural traditions."
YU Director Sandra Percival joins Cotter in the discussion.
Lecture • 7pm • October 5 • sliding scale $5+, $3 for students, artists
• 800 SE 10th • 503.236.7996
There's an ongoing boycott of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi by some 130 international artists (over labor conditions for the foreign workers who are building the museum).
Controversial decision by YU to associate with the project.
