CURATORIAL CONTESTATIONS: CHALLENGING INSTITUTIONAL MODES OF INCLUSION IN THE ARTS THROUGH CURATORIAL POSITION(S) AND PRACTICE(S)
In today’s climate of political unrest, art institutions and curators play increasingly important roles, serving (their) varied constituencies and cultural communities by creating meaningful points of contact with diverse materials and representational practices. Nevertheless, institutions and curators continue to perform neoliberal politics through mere inclusion that does not reckon with necessary structural change. This dissertation responds to how art exhibitions and art institutions have recentred whiteness through their representational logics, with case studies that unsettle traditional curatorial methods and methodologies. More specifically, it explores three distinct curatorial approaches to spatially and conceptually laying out an exhibition in the gallery that offer decolonizing potential: (1) juxtapositional contrast; (2) intertextual simultaneity and layering; and (3) re-oriented sightlines and entry points. Drawing on Black, Indigenous, feminist, queer, diasporic, and critical settler writings and pedagogies, this project seeks to reveal alternative ways of working with and representing BIPOC artists and histories in relation to curatorial subject positions and institutional contexts.
