Curatorial Practice Today: Chrissie Iles

CANCELED — we regret any inconvenience 

Chrissie Iles is the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She cocurated the 2004 and 2006 Whitney Biennials, and curated major survey exhibitions of Marina Abramovic, Dan Graham, Louise Bourgeois, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, and Yoko Ono, exhibitions of Paul McCarthy, James Lee Byars, and Jack Goldstein, and group exhibitions including Signs of the Times: Film, Video and Slide Installation and Britain in the 1980s, Scream and Scream Again: Film in Art, and Into the Light: The Projected Image in American Art 1964–1977.

The new “Curatorial Practicum” seminar “Constructing New Narratives: Curatorial Practice Today” (ARTH 6010), a Spring 2014 course organized by the Museum in collaboration with the Department of the History of Art and Visual Studies, examines curatorial practice related to collection, installation, and exhibition strategies.

A series of lectures held in conjunction with the course will provide students and the public with the opportunity to hear curators from around the country talk about their experiences from cultural and historical contexts, the politics of display, internationalization, and new technologies.

These lectures are supported in part by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
