Curating the status: a report on the CURATORIAL FUTURE TALKS 2017 – sharing curatorial practices in France and Belgium


Mélanie Berger, Work in progress, 2017

The Curatorial Future Talks 2017 are an initiative by C-E-A, organized in partnership with Flanders Arts Institute, ISELP, the Direction des Arts plastiques contemporains of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and 50° nord réseau transfrontalier d’art contemporain, during the Brussels Gallery Weekend in September 2017.
