Exhibitions: making places

For the past several decades, exhibition curating has become a central component in the system of art production and distribution.  With the growth of biennials, contemporary art museums, and public interventions, and their proliferation across the globe, curatorial practices are going through intense processes of experimentation and innovation.  Exhibitions are not only expanding to accommodate creative activity from all around the world, they are also turning into sites of production of new artistic visions, concept forms and social relationships.  Ultimately, they are a driving force in the making of new cultural localities in the age of globalization.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
