Maria Lind speaks about her curatorial practice, specifically her experience engaging and building diverse publics at Tensta konsthall in Stockholm. This edition of Open Seminar is organized in conjunction with Associated Professor Christina Linden’s “Global Art Worlds” graduate seminar.
Call + Response is an open invitation to Bay Area cultural producers in fields of design, architecture, humanities, civic affairs, urban planning, and more who want to connect with Curatorial Research Bureau to insert their ideas into the public realm for dialogue. The format speaks to a long history of democratic participation, projecting thoughts and ideas in public gatherings where speaking and listening—call and response—are equally valued as essential parts of public discourse.
