Programs

CRB is host to free programs that transform the familiar consumer site of a bookshop into bookshop/screening, bookshop/seminar, or bookshop/artist talk. The platform uses consumerism to eschew the private space of academia and public space of exhibition to, above all, forge a learning site where intersections among art, design, education, and consumer culture push against the ways that institutions address audiences.

Four programmatic models—AfterWord, Call + Response, Case Studies, and Open Seminar—serve as primary means to contextualize topics that have our attention as a community.

Communities and Institutions: A Conversation

Sat, Apr 20, 2019
12–2 pm
(free and open to the public)

Students of the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice at CCA present a public panel discussion examining the roles and responsibilities of curators in building communities and audiences. Panelists Deena Chalabi, Daniela Lieja Quinatar, Lian Ladia, and Megan Steinman will address how curators cultivate and incorporate the voices of a community in their practice, how new communities are created through commissioned art initiatives, and what it means to engage various kinds of communities as an institution.
