Dear Curator Curate Me: Chabib Duta Hapsoro & Rizki Lazuardi
Selasar Sunaryo Art Space (http://www.selasarsunaryo.com/) 19 May-8 June 2013
Dear Curator Curate Me (http://www.dearcuratorcurateme.info/) is a project by Kristoffer Ardeña (http://www.ardena.info/).
The booklet is designed by Irfan Hendrian (http://www.regmart.net/) and hand-made by Oma Anna (http://www.omaanna.com). The limited edition booklet can be downloaded here (Issuu) and here (Box).
Dear Curator Curate Me in Indonesia is coordinated by Roma Arts (http://fatumbrutum.blogspot.com/).
Kristoffer Ardeña selected 15 videos and this selection travels around the world, each place where this selection makes a stop a curator is invited to develop a discourse on these videos. Dear Curator Curate Me at Selasar Sunaryo Art Space is this project’s debut, which will continue in the Philippines, Spain, Peru, etc. This project reverses the roles of the artist and the curator in a witty manner by emphasizing the curatorial essay. This traveling project aims to show how in different contexts around the globe curators can respond to the same collection of videos and slowly this project will turn into an archive of a curatorial discourse with its many contrasting voices.
