La semana pasada visité la muestra The Generational, una propuesta bianual que el New Museum de Nueva York inaugura con la generación Younger than Jesus. Me pareció interesante que el modelo de curaduría es análogo al que Florencia ha propuesto: en formato de red, participativo, geográficamente ambicioso gracias a las herramientas digitales de trabajo (como este blog-semilla):
Artists were selected for “Younger Than Jesus” through an open curatorial model that is participatory, and inspired by the networking proclivities of the generation represented in the show. Initial research for the exhibition was conducted through an international network of correspondents and an information-sharing group of more than 150 curators, writers, teachers, artists, critics, and bloggers worldwide, who were asked to recommend artists for the exhibition. This methodology was intended to expand the curatorial process and challenge the traditional “single-source” method of creating an exhibition. Through this process, more than 500 artists were recommended and researched.
