Nordic Nanaimo Exchange New Curatorial Initiatives
The lure of the translocal and its discontent

Event Details

The pandemic is a tale of the accelerated transformation of our ecological system and it foregrounds the unjust structures as the asymmetrical relations of resources within our global performing arts field. The need to reformulate international collaboration is inevitable, so how do we reshape our curatorial practice in response to that needt? Would exploring trans-local collaborations, where international aspirations are embedded in one’s locality, be a way forward? A translocality that on one hand engages in the diversity of one’s own locality and on the other operates as a cultural node in a connected network of affinities that transgress, or traverse, national borders. What would such curatorial work look like? What are the critical implications of such trans-local collaboration?
