Para Site International Curator's Talk

“Curatorial engagements in the Mekong Subregion of the Southeast Asia” by Rich. Streitmatter-Tran

Para Site Art Space is honored to present a Public Lecture by Rich. Streitmatter-Tran, Co-curator of Asia Pacific Triennial (APT6).

Streitmatter-Tran introduces some of the conditions in the Mekong sub region that affect contemporary arts practices with a particular stress on the curator-artist relationship. He draws upon his previous research with the Mediating the Mekong Project, which is a connection to his curatorial research with the development of a Mekong-based platform for the Asia Pacific Triennale. He attempts to provide some insight from the perspective of an artist working with curators and what an artist might consider a “good curator” as opposed to an art critic, institution, and the public at large.
