Event description

Description

Please join us for a discussion on the keyword “international” in the context of two ongoing curatorial projects with respective team members: the 57th Carnegie International with Associate Curator Liz Park, and Queens International 2018: Volumes with curator Sophia Marisa Lucas. The conversation with Park and Lucas will be moderated by Sreshta Rit Premnath and Avi Alpert, the editors of Shifter. Shifter is a topical publication that lies at the intersection between contemporary art, politics and philosophy and whose 2016 publication The Dictionary of the Possible emerged from a series of public discussions held over two years at The New School. Premnath and Alpert will be adding “international” as an addendum to the dictionary in response to this discussion.

Alongside the works in the two exhibitions, the group will discuss how internationalism has been taken up in global political struggles from the 19th century to the present. What do these exhibitions reveal about the potentials, limits, and failures of the term “international” politically and historically? Looking back to Luis Camnitzer, Jane Farver, and Rachel Weiss’s 1999 exhibition at the Queens Museum, Global Conceptualism: Points of Origin, 1950s–1980s, the discussion will also broach the possibility of internationalism as the intersection of multiple trajectories rather than a harmonious principle.

For this discussion on the keyword “international,” a shared Google Doc has been created in which anyone can join the conversation about (un)defining this term.
