Plymouth Arts Centre and i-DAT present Inter_connections seminar, the concluding event of a curatorial residency undertaken by Basak Senova. Senova is assistant professor at Kadir Has University, an independent curator and founding member of the Istanbul association NOMAD. Senova was resident at i-DAT and Plymouth Arts Centre in January 2008 as part of the programme of International Curatorial Research Residencies initiated by the Curatorial Network.
The seminar reflects upon the notion of ‘perceiving urban based realities within cross-territorial practices and networks’. There are presentations by Basak Senova; Ute Meta Bauer (Director of the Visual Arts programme at MIT, artistic director of the 3rd Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art & co-curator of Documenta 11); Paul O’Neil (curator, writer and Research Fellow with Situations at the University of the West of England, Bristol researching the development of contemporary curatorial practice); i-DAT and Plymouth Arts Centre.
Basak Senova is mapping cross-cultural generosity, sharing, communication, social interaction and exchange in contemporary art practice. Starting with the structuring of an active personal curatorial network map, she aims to detect and process parallel cases and counter-actions, which set new modes and channels for social, political and cultural information flow.
Part of the Curatorial Network programme, delivered by KURATOR, ArtProjects and Solutions and supported by Arts Council England South West. For further information or to join the discussion list, see http://www.curatorial.net
