PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE AND CARRIAGEWORKS
Zvonimir Dobrovic is the founder, curator and producer of both Queer Zagreb and Queer New York. The festival began in Croatia in 2003 and has since become a major international event, providing a conceptual framework for an experimental program of queer works that feature artists from around the world in a range of cities including Zagreb, Chicago, Sao Paulo, Athens, Berlin and more.
As part of Performance Space’s 2015 International Lecture Series, Dobrovic will deliver a lecture that focuses on his curatorial practice, challenging the notion of “queer art” and delving into the process of programming festivals and curating works from a quintessentially queer perspective.
What is queer art today?
How does the definition of queer change?
Do we need to define art as queer?
What socio-political role does queer art play?
Join Dobrovic as he examines prevalent curating methodologies and issues around curation as a simultaneously powerful and vulnerable act, as well as a unique platform for building an engaged community of artists, audiences, and colleagues. Delve a little deeper, into contentious territory, as Dobrovic interrogates the need for ‘experimentation’ and the ways we can measure its success.
