Free to Frieze pass holders
In a climate where traditional funding models are giving away to a more complex relationship between public institutions and private funding, Frieze Talks and the Contemporary Art Society have invited leading curators to discuss the challenges of new collaborations.
Throughout the seminar we will investigate new areas of collaboration between institutions, private collections, commercial galleries and other contexts that consider curatorial research at the heart of their mission. Together with leading speakers we will discuss the many ways in which the private and the public might meet, taking examples in different parts of the world and thinking together about the future of curation.
This event is tailored to art professionals.
To make the seminar as engaging as possible curators are encouraged to bring an example of a collaboration within the private sector. Topics can include but are not limited to: gifts and bequests, private collections on display in museums, donations and long loans from private collections, collaborations with commercial galleries, commissions for corporate developers, invitations to curate exhibitions in other settings, career changes within the public to the private sector and more.
