This series of free online events maps the radical potential of curatorial practice to enable connections between people and disciplines, individuals and their wider communities of interest and place. Conversations on Curating explores how curating is continuously redefined and repositioned in ways that go far beyond exhibition-making. It draws on the local and global networks of curatorial scholars and practitioners in Cork, Ireland, and is a collaborative initiative at University College Cork led by Carlos Garrido Castellano and the curatorial team of the Glucksman. Conversations on Curating is presented online extending the museum’s focus on the contemporary intersections between visual culture, critical thought and curating, and the discursive relationships between academic research and art practice.

Conversations on Curating is funded by University College Cork and the Arts Council of Ireland.
