Hyde Park Art Center invites you to join us for an open discussion on curatorial practice led by visiting resident curator Milena Hoegsberg this Monday, April 25 at 6pm. Hoegsberg will contextualize her curatorial work at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), then lead an open roundtable conversation with artists and others she has met while in Chicago posing the questions: how can curatorial practices be responsive to specific institutional contexts, conditions and challenges? How can they best serve artists and varied publics? How can networks both formal and informal enrich one’s practice and the field? This event is free and open to all.
Hoegsberg has been Chief Curator at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), Oslo, since August 2011. Curated exhibitions at HOK include: Torbjørn Rødland: Sasquatch Century (2015); Human Space Machine: Stage Experiments at the Bauhaus and Bauhaus in Norwegian (2014); Lea Porsager: Sluggish and Well-lubricated (2013); Work Time (2013); Ann Cathrin November Høibo: Alpelue and Omer Fast (2012). She is currently spearheading an exhibition history research project into the archive at HOK and a by-invitation curatorial residency called A Pendaflex for the Future. Hoegsberg has an MA from the Center for Curatorial Studies Bard College and a BA in Art History from Columbia University.
