CICA-ICAC - Communauté internationale des commissaires des arts de la scène - International community of performing arts curators

Symposium 2014



From April 10th to 13th, 2014 in Montréal

ACAQ is organizing its’ first symposium, Envisioning the Practice: Montréal International Symposium on Curating the Performing Arts, from April 10th to 13th, 2014.

The symposium will be hosted by the Faculté des arts of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Montreal (Canada).

Envisioning the Practice strives to create further parameters and grounds on which to foster theories and critical thinking about the practice of curating the performing arts through the presentation, discussion and publication of academic papers on related topics.

This symposium brings together proponents of recent critical and practice-based discourses on curating the performing arts (dance/movement, émergent practices, interdisciplinary forms, media arts, music/sound, theater/text-based) in order to enrich, structure and theorize the practice of curating in the field, with an interest in best practices.
