Abstract or Description:

Presentation for the Panel ‘Curating Performance in the Age of the Global Contemporary: Chair Dr. Janet Marstine, University of Leicester; Ethan Lasser, Harvard Art Museums; Oscar Ho, Chinese University Hong Kong, Dr. Mel Jordan Dr. Andrew Hewitt, Freee art collective.
A presentation on Freee’s art practice and reflection on a series of seminars by Freee with Museum Studies PhD students entitled Working within the Histories, Theories and Practices of the Public Sphere. Seminars and workshops, 12th and 15th April.

Seminar Aim: an introduction to the histories, theories and practices of the public sphere. Through the content provided this seminar gives an introduction to understanding the historical roots and contemporary theorizing of the terms; Public, Public Art, Public Sphere, Citizenship and Civil Society in relation to art practice. We attempt to explore what the term ‘public’ means for art and curatorial practices and propose that by utilising the notion of the public in relation to Public Sphere theory we can rearrange our preconceptions of how art is produced, displayed and viewed. The seminar session will include presentations and exercises on how to be public.
