Curator-in-residence

Committed to supporting artists, curators, and researchers by offering them time and space to pursue their research without the pressure of deadlines and production commitments, the Residencies Programme values the open-ended nature of artistic research and embraces multiform expressions of creative enquiry. Aiming to facilitate the production of knowledge, this studio-based programme is dedicated to established and emerging artists and serves as platform for critical exchange in Southeast Asia. The Residencies Programme offers a wide spectrum of programmes aimed at sharing the process of artistic research with the public - Residencies OPEN / Studio Sessions / Insights, which range from open studios, artists’ talks, conversations, performances, and screenings. The Residencies Programme unfolds through annual cycles and runs by nomination only. Every year, a rotating pool of curators and arts professionals from all over the world is invited to nominate two artists for the residency. The nominated artists are subsequently invited to submit a research proposal along with their portfolio and CV. Ultimately, the Residencies Committee, an international panel of experts, reviews the submitted materials and designates the artists who are awarded the residency.

Focus

Through his research on the theory and practice of “the hyperimage”, Alfredo Cramerotti aims to research and meet artists, curators, and writers working at the cusp of visual information and networked imaging, in order to scope future collaborations. During his residency, Cramerotti will also present a lecture titled The Curator as Meta Artist. Modes of Curation in the Age of [Aesthetic] Uncertainty, discussing three different modes in which curatorial practice can function.

In this lecture, Alfredo Cramerotti will discuss three curatorial projects which reflect different modes in which curatorial practice can function. Inspired by Beryl Graham and Sarah Cook’s Rethinking Curating. Art after New Media (The MIT Press, 2010), these three models are described as: 1) the iterative model, in which new projects grow around a selection of works of art or media, changing from venue to venue or from format to format; 2) the modular model, in which one embodiment of the project take places within a multilevel event structure, with the possibility to scale its elements up or down; 3) the broadcast model, where various people create their own infrastructure to circulate content (and the process of curating itself) under a regime of distributed responsibility. Arguing that these curatorial modes are hinged less on the “what” and more on the “how,” Cramerotti eventually defines the practice of working with a combination of these models as “acting as meta-artist.”
