What does it mean to curate? How does one go about putting together a curatorial exhibition? And what are the ethical responsibilities that one needs to consider when one thinks about working with complex issues?
Join Manar Abo Touk (PhD Student, Art History, Concordia), Lorraine Doucet Sisto (MA Art History, UQAM) and Varda Nisar (PhD Candidate, Art History/Public Scholar, Concordia) in this self-deprecating podcast for some laugh, serious pondering on what it means to put together an exhibition, while learning on the job.
Their co-curated multi-site exhibition re* imagining / créer / building / faire / mapping / connaissance / … opens March 9th at FOFA Gallery, and March 30th at the Webster Library.

The Concise Museum takes an experimental approach and works as a method to think through the museums that form part of my doctoral research. By collaging different exhibits in these museums thematically and juxtaposing them with colonial frames and writings by military dictators/regimes who commissioned these museums, the project aims to understand the consistent narrative that these museums propagate.
