T J Demos on the Tate Triennial
T.J. Demos will be in conversation with Deborah Cherry; the discussion will address the Tate Triennial currently on at Tate Britain, and the way the exhibition corresponds to its conceptualization by Nicolas Bourriaud in relation to the his four framing categories: the altermodern, exile, travel, and borders.
What makes a transnational practice or perspective in art or curating? TrAIN Conversations are informal conversations with invited artists and curators, followed by round-table discussions with the participants.
