Are you a curator, artist, cultural policy maker, museum professional, researcher, gallerist, performer, writer, publisher, cultural journalist, theatre professional, communicator, cultural diplomat, musician, producer or a passionate involved in the arts? Join us for the Arts & Globalization talk- and performance program “Remembering the Future” this spring in Venice, Italy.

The Western canons in the art history have come to an end. A global, contemporary art of diverse origins has taken its place. What are the implications for curators, artists and museums? Who are the new auteurs? What is cultural translation in the arts?

The first Arts & Globalization Conference – Achieving Intercultural Dialogue Through the Arts was held in Copenhagen in 2015 and aimed to engage with the complexities of the new status of arts and visuality in contemporary art practice and art theory in the context of “globalization”. It addressed the complex interplay between cultural policy making, art curation and art production.

This year´s Arts & Globalization program is held in Venice during the first week of La Biennale di Venezia 2017. It will feature a number of talks and performances by leading and emerging curators, artists and cultural producers from across the world . The event will be the international launch of the Arts & Globalization Platform and a bridge to the next international Arts & Globalization Conference that will take place in 2018.

The purpose of the Arts & Globalization Platform is to create an artistic and intellectual meeting place for the different stakeholders of the arts and to create an international and interdisciplinary conversation on the role of the different positions in the arts today.

The Platform is also intended to be a mobile space that can generate new artistic and curatorial ideas and new international networks, collaborations and friendships.

We hope to see you in Venice, Italy!
