We curate our playlists, our menus, and our outfits. Urban planning, poetry, and software design have choreographic elements. These phenomena point to the potential of the curatorial and the choreographic to open new spaces for aesthetic engagement.
Assembling a Praxis: Choreographic Thinking and Curatorial Agency imagines a site where the curatorial and the choreographic meet. Curation under these conditions becomes a way to ask questions, make introductions, and invite possibilities, using the platform of the gallery space as laboratory, rehearsal room, studio, and stage. It seeks, rather than seeking to answer.
