Panelists: Nolan Jimbo (Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago), Adia Sykes (Independent Curator), Kate Sierzputowski (Airlock, BARELY FAIR, Julius Caesar, EXPO CHICAGO). Moderated by Scott Campbell (Independent Curators International).
The apartment gallery AIRLOCK opened last summer, inviting Chicago-based curators to form exhibitions within the confines of a laundry room. Producing scaled exhibitions requires an understanding of space and capacity while also maximizing the impact of an artist's practice in the presented confines. Institutions often have similar restrictions, albeit at a larger scale. Join Nolan Jimbo, Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and guest curator at this year's BARELY FAIR for a look at his projects within and outside institutions. Jimbo will be joined in conversation with Adia Sykes, independent curator and former AIRLOCK curator and Kate Sierzputowski, AIRLOCK and BARELY FAIR co-director in a conversation moderated by Scott Campbell, Midwest Programs Manager at Independent Curators International.
