Peer-to-peer: curating and collaboration in new media art

The work of curators has evolved from managing objects in a museum to presenting the work of living artists in temporary exhibitions, while increasingly becoming prominent professionals in the art world. In most cases, the curator has retained a status of primus inter pares, in a complex relationship of power and authority. The artists, on the other hand, have gradually moved from the romantic ideal of the solitary genius to a more open collaboration with other artists and assistants, while retaining their identity.

In the context of new media art, the processual nature of most artworks and the merging of art and technology determine the need to establish new forms of collaboration between curators, artists and technicians. Working as peers, they focus on solving problems and finding the best way to present the artworks in a given context by exchanging ideas. This collaboration entails new models for curating, as well as producing, exhibiting and experiencing art, which point towards the conception of new media art as a collective activity, in which the separation between curator, artist, technician and public becomes blurred.fachada-do-museu-de-artes

Con motivo del II Seminario Internacional de Moda, Cultura y Arte organizado por la Universidad Federal de Juiz de Fora (Brasil), fui invitado a presentar una ponencia acerca de mi ámbito de investigación en una sesión que se centraba en los colectivos y el arte contemporáneo. Decidí examinar el concepto de lo colectivo en el arte de nuevos medios, partiendo de la habitual concepción del artista, el comisario e incluso el público como un personaje individual, lo cual me llevó a analizar casos de autoría colectiva, colaboración entre comisarios y artistas, y participación activa del público en el hecho artístico. En el enlace inferior se puede ver el vídeo de la sesión en la que participé, en castellano y portugués. A continuación se reproduce el resumen (en inglés) de la ponencia.

Amb motiu del II Seminari Internacional de Moda, Cultura i Art organitzat per la Universitat Federal de Juiz de Fora (Brasil), vaig ser convidat a presentar una ponència sobre el meu àmbit d’investigació en una sessió que se centrava en els col·lectius i l’art contemporani. Vaig decidir examinar el concepte del col·lectiu en l’art de nous mitjans, partint de l’habitual concepció de l’artista, el comissari i fins i tot el públic com un personatge individual, la qual cosa em va portar a analitzar casos d’autoria col·lectiva, col·laboració entre comissaris i artistes, i participació activa del públic en el fet artístic. En l’enllaç inferior es pot veure el vídeo de la sessió en la qual vaig participar, en castellà i portuguès. A continuació es reprodueix el resum (en anglès) de la ponència.
