In this presentation, Swedish curator Maria Lind will speak about her work at Stockholm’s Tensta Konsthall to the Gwangju Biennale, and how a context-sensitive curatorial methodology took shape along the way.

Lind will explore the central parts of her methodology: self-institutionalization, displacement, art-centricity, embeddedness, pervasive eclecticism, and the proximity principle. Please join us after the presentation for a reception.

Lind is currently the Director of Kin Museum of Contemporary Art, Kiruna. She has held various roles in recent years including Director of Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; Artistic Director of the 11th Gwangju Biennale; and Director of Kunstverein München, Munich. In 1998, she was co-curator of Manifesta 2, Europe’s nomadic biennial of contemporary art.
