SEMINAR: “Cultural Representation and Intercultural Relations through Curatorial Practice”

TUESDAY, February 16 / 3 – 5 PM / Humanities 210
Readings will be available from or online at:

Since the early 1980s, multiculturalism, identity politics, and post-colonial discourse have infused curatorial practice with representations of a rich ethnic and gender diversity previously absent from mainstream art discourse. More recently, terms such as post-national, post-multicultural, and post-ethnic have been injected into the lexicon of cultural theory. What are the implications of this shift?

Curator Carolina Ponce de León discusses these questions and issues of cultural representation. Referencing her curatorial practice and exhibition history, she addresses the ways artists, critics, curators, organizations, and the media have framed, ignored and/or expanded notions of cultural identity.
