London’s ICA is putting on a panel discussion titled Restaging Exhibitions: Reconsidering Art History and Exhibition Making and happening on November 15.
Taking the ICA’s revisiting of the Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition as its starting point, the panel discussion explores the “complex mediation between art history and their own materiality” that restaging exhibitions entails, and the rise in such projects that has led to a restaged exhibition developing its genealogy, “becoming an object in itself”.
With ICA Executive Director Gregor Muir serving as the chair, the panel has also invited the Director of the Museum for Contemporary Art Ghent (S.M.A.K.), Philippe Van Cauteren, as well as the Director of Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Hans-Jürgen Hafner, and the Head of Programme Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, Victoria Walsh.
