Benighted Owl: Joao Ribas curates curating at Glassell

On Wednesday, May 11, Houston’s Glassell School is hosting a lecture by curator João Ribas titled The Belated Owl: Curating and the Contemporary. Ribas’ talk focuses on self-referentiality in academic curating, and asks “to what historical or epistemic criteria can the curatorial care of the present be indexed to?” and “yet what are the conditions of curating contemporary art — the temporality it inhabits and its role in the ongoing debate on how it is being symbolized and historicized?” Find out what he means (and scold him for his atrocious jargon) at 7pm in the school’s Freed Auditorium, 5101 Montrose Blvd. Free!
