CuratorLab is pleased to announce its participation at the Temporary Parliament organized by Visible Project, Fondazione Pistoletto and Fondazione Zegna, in collaboration with Lafayette Anticipations, for the conferring of the Visible Award 2019, a grant devoted to produce and sustain socially engaged artistic practices in a global context.

CuratorLab 2019/2020 participants: Alba Folgado, Benjamin Thomas, Carlota Mir, Carolina Lio, Claudia Stübi, Pia Chakraverti-Würthwein, Sara Alberani, Sofia Steinvorth, Tal Gilad.

On 16 November 2019, a jury of more than 100 people (professionals from art and social fields, civil society) will gather at the Hôtel de Ville in Paris for a day-long debate around the 10 shortlisted projects. CuratorLab participants will advocate each of the 10 projects, engaging with the jury in a process of collective learning and debate within the conceptual and physical space of an actual parliament.

"The public’s engagement in the assessment and voting on the art projects transformed the Visible Award into an occasion for collective learning and the expansion of the discourse instigated by and around the projects. The jury session is not merely a dialogue between experts, to select an exemplary socially engaged art project, but also a moment to reframe the narratives through which we speak about art and its role in processes for social transformation. While assessing the criteria through which we collectively decided the recipient of the 25.000 euros award, the temporary parliament offers an opportunity to deepen the debate around artistic engagement in the public domain."
