Pay what you can

curatorial studies presents:
MATHIEU COPELAND

Please join us for the inaugural Curatorial Lecture in the 2019-20 series on the theme of 'Working with Collections', by the London-based curator and publisher

MATHIEU COPELAND

At Kunsthal Gent, 19:00 - 21:00

––– Free, All Welcome –––

As a curator, Mathieu Copeland has been developing a practice that seeks to subvert the traditional role of, and renew our perceptions of exhibitions.

He co-curated the exhibition "VOIDS, A Retrospective" (2009) at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Kunsthalle, Bern, and edited the accompanying anthology VOIDS.

His recent exhibitions include "A Retrospective of Closed Exhibitions" at Kunsthalle Fribourg (2016) and "The exhibition of a film" (2014), an exhibition as a feature film for cinemas.

Copeland edited the critically acclaimed anthology and manifesto publication "Choreographing Exhibitions" (2013). In 2017, he co-edited the anthology "The Anti-Museum" (FRI ART / Koenig Books). His most recent edited volume – the anthology "Gustav Metzger: Writings" (JRP | Editions, 2019) – comes out this month.

––– ––– –––

Each academic year, S.M.A.K., Ghent University and Curatorial Studies at KASK-School of Arts Ghent co-organise the prestigious Curatorial Lectures series, given by renowned curatorial practitioners in relation to a specific theme. After "Working with Artists" (2017-18) and "Learning from Artists" (2018-19), this year's theme addresses the curatorial challenges of curating in the context of public and private collections.

Past speakers in the Curatorial Lectures series have included Anthony Huberman, Jean-Hubert Martin, Chus Martínez, Gabi Ngcobo, Susanne Pfeffer, Nicolaus Schafhausen and Adam Szymczyk.
