Curatorial Conversations intends to map the radical potential of curatorial thought through a series of online talks and discussions. Inviting a range of international curators, the programme explores museums as laboratories where curating is continuously redefined and repositioned in ways that go far beyond exhibition-making.
Curatorial Conversations is programmed by The Glucksman and the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, University College Cork.
