Curatorial Programme Final Project

Curatorial Programme Final Project

Opening: Friday 22 May from 6-9 pm
de Appel, Prins Hendrikkade 142, Amsterdam

De Appel arts centre is pleased to present the final project of the Curatorial Programme 2014 - 2015 with two exhibitions: Spell to Spelling ** Spelling to Spell and Your Time Is Not My Time.

Spell to Spelling ** Spelling to Spell emerges in the spaces between the linguistic and associative relations of the notions of the spell and the spelling. The exhibition investigates various facets and rituals dealing with voluntary, involuntary and removed memory of the author, the visitors and the artworks themselves. Many ways of unfolding references, sources, stories and histories behind the objects will be explored. Participating artists, interpreters, archaeologists, scientists, historians, pilgrims, butchers and crossword experts: David Bernstein (US), Francisco Camacho (CO), Alberto De Michele (IT), Christian Fogarolli (IT), Ola Lanko (UA), Martin La Roche (CL), Myriam Lefkowitz (FR), Charles Matton (FR), Robertas Narkus (LT), Ossip (NL).

Your Time Is Not My Time lays the question of blurred boundaries between viewer, author and user within the current habitual fear of missing out and hyper-circulation of images. The exhibition uncovers a thorough pace and tacit admission within the changing lexicon of the public sphere, data-driven economies and forms of usership. Participating artists include: Lav Diaz (PH), Benjamin Forster (AU), Andrés Galeano (ES), Riley Harmon (US), Metahaven (NL), Alexandra Navratil (CH), Sam Smith (AU), Wu Tsang (US), Bruno Zhu (PT).

Each year de Appel arts centre takes six young curators from all corners of the world under its wings for an intensive professional development programme. Over a period of ten months they are given the opportunity to improve their professional skills in an intensive array of workshops, excursions, practice-related assignments and encounters with artists and art professionals. The programme culminates in a final project curated by the participants, that can take on the form of an exhibition, festival or intervention.
