Curating During A Pandemic | Natalie King & Su Baker

Natalie King (NK): Working from Melbourne, the most lock-downed city in the world, has meant that our viewpoint is from fixed coordinates or one place. We have had time to reflect on our circumstances and reorganise priorities. Like you, many of us are usually travelling, researching, meeting at biennales or international conferences and now we convene online. In some ways, this has been an equalizer to appear in the same dimensions as a square on a screen with greater access and less hierarchy.

How can we reassess the need to travel and our carbon footprint? What does this mean for biennials that rely on mobility? Many museums have become attached to bloated blockbusters with expensive entry tickets. Art biennials were testing grounds, now they are being tested. There is a lot to ponder.
