About this Event

Josée Drouin-Brisebois is the Senior Curator of Contemporary Art responsible for the collections of Canadian and international Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Canada. She has been involved with the representation of Canada at the Venice Biennale for the last decade. She organized the Canadian participation in the 2013 (Shary Boyle) and 2011 (Steven Shearer) Venice Biennales. She also served as Project Director for Geoffrey Farmer’s participation in 2017 and was the lead curator of Isuma for the 2019 edition. She is the Curator of the 13th Kaunas Biennial in Lithuania (2021-22). She has curated numerous exhibitions including at the National Gallery of Canada as well as at the Art Gallery of Alberta, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Toronto (MOCA) and The Rooms. In addition to publishing catalogues for the National Gallery and the Venice Biennale, her writing on contemporary art has appeared in a variety of publications and periodicals in Canada and abroad.

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.
