The Nature of Curating (an ongoing project)

The interviews aims to create an awareness of the importance and the necessity of  a curatorial engagement.It presents various interviews with a wide range of international curators with different backgrounds and perspectives, asking fundamental questions about curating and the importance of the role of a curator as well as their views on nationalization of contemporary art, and using alternative spaces and many more questions that we found relevant to the Iranian art scene today.
