Act of Curation

Act of Curation is a curatorial conversation with Push Executive Director Norman Armour, Senior Curator Sherrie Johnson, and Associate Curator Dani Fecko moderated by SFU Woodward’s Director of Cultural Programs, Michael Boucher. The conversation took place on Friday, January 28 in the Djavad Mowafaghian Theatre at the SFU Centre for the Contemporary Arts.

Act of Curation is a creative exploration of curatorial considerations in presenting contemporary creative contributions from the point of view of the Push International Performing Arts Festival.

What criteria are in play when selecting, commissioning, and interpreting curatorial choices? Who is our audience? How does the work provoke our community? Where does Vancouver stand in the creative milieu of performing arts internationally? How do we want to evolve in our contribution?
