Dear List,

This month's theme will focus on curatorial practices online, with specific reference to discussing the structural and socio-economic conditions inherent in adopting ready-made web-based platforms such as YouTube, versus custom-built ones. This theme is hosted by Marialaura Ghidini, Doctoral researcher with CRUMB. To give some background to this discussion, let's start from some notes on curatorial practice recently re-read.

In her introduction to the book Curating with Light Luggage (2005), curator Maria Lind writes 'the amnesia surrounding curatorial practice is astounding, as if the spatial and time-related contextualisation of an artwork in exhibitions and their formats where not relevant.' Most of Lind's curatorial practice centres around institutional spaces and the possibility to break with classic forms of display within their structural and organisational framework (the museum solo or group exhibition as conceived in the 19th century) in favour of a mode of 'communicating art' through working towards creating a 'museum that would function simultaneously as a production site, a distribution channel and as a venue for conversations' (Learning from Art and Artists, 2001). The reason I am quoting Maria Lind as a starting point for this discussion is that she touches upon some curatorial questions and concerns which I find helpful to ground a discussion about curating online in the broader context of curatorial practice. Lind talks about "creating contexts in relation to and in combination with other existing contexts" - chiming with the curator as editor, filter-feeder, etc. – simultaneous site of production and distribution - see the web-based platform as both a medium of production and distribution - and she discusses her curatorial practice in relation to site-specificity, in her words 'context-sensitivity' - for which curatorial work affect and is affected by the site in which it takes place seen as both a physical space and intellectual landscape – in our case the web-based platform or the online context.

How does curating online differ from organising gallery exhibitions?
What are current examples of the tensions or complementarity existing between the online (web display and publishing, radio, streaming) and offline (physical exhibition, paper publishing, event) dimensions when curating on and through web-based platforms? Also, is there a difference, for instance, between web as exhibition and web as broadcast and/or publishing?
How does adopting web-based platforms have an impact on the contextualisation of a work, the creation of a curatorial narrative, and communication with an audience?
In what ways does this change the artist-curator relationship and the processes of curatorial production?

I am interested in discussing the above (broad) questions in relation to the concept of curatorial strategy, such as the form and format of presentation, structural organisation and arrangement of artistic material and production/distribution processes.
