Swiss curator Patrick Gosatti will make a presentation on curatorial practises at 1.Shanthiroad as part of his India tour. Patrick is in India to participate in the
Experimenter Curator’s Hub in Kolkata.
The talk will address the question of curating and art producing considered from both a theoretical and practical point of view. The term "production" will be in this sense
considered not only as a pragmatic process leading to the creation of an art work but also as an holistic process which goes beyond the art object and leads to the creation
of meaning and practical / theoretical knowledge. As part of his presentation Patrick will introduce the audience to his curatorial projects and theoretical research.
