Curators in Conversation: Philipp Kaiser and Katy Siegel
9 December 2017, 16.30 – 17.30
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Independence Avenue at Seventh Street, SW, Washington, District of Columbia 2002

 
Representing their respective countries at the 57th annual Venice Biennale, Swiss curator Philipp Kaiser and US curator Katy Siegel come together to discuss the art of curating on a major international platform. Kaiser’s pavilion brought together new work by contemporary artists Carol Bove and the duo Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler to pay tribute to Alberto Giacometti, who, though one of the most well-known Swiss artists, had never shown at the international exhibition. Siegel co-curated the United States Pavilion with a new site-specific series of works by celebrated LA-based artist Mark Bradford, whose monumental painting Pickett’s Charge recently opened in the Hirshhorn’s Third Level inner-circle galleries. Along with a discussion of Bradford’s installation and Art Basel Miami, where Kaiser curates the Public Sector, the curators highlight their various projects and offer insight into the art world today.

A live-streaming with Philipp Kaiser will be available on Facebook the day of the event. Follow #SwissTouch @SwissEmbassyUSA
