Contemporary curation could use a shake-up. New perspectives and new voices are imperative, particularly those that operate outside of the traditional confines of art museums. As part of the CAN Triennial, the Artists Archives and The Sculpture Center are proud to feature two exhibitions curated by Currently Under Curation (CUC), a group of six high school curators facilitated by The Cleveland Museum of Art.
On Wednesday, August 3rd, 5:30 – 6:30pm, the Artists Archives and The Sculpture Center will partner to present a CAN Artist/Curator Walk & Talk, featuring CUC student curator Sarah Voss and several artists she helped select. Sabine Kretzschmar, the coordinator of the Currently Under Curation fellows, will discuss the workings of the innovative program. They will be joined by CAN Triennial artists Derek Walker and Will Wilson, who will share insights about their fascinating pieces on display.
“CUC’s choices are a breath of fresh air,” reflects Archives’ Marketing and Program Manager Megan Alves. “We couldn’t be more delighted to host their vibrant, energetic selections which include both emerging artists at the beginning of their careers, as well as foundational Northeast Ohio creators.” A third exhibition curated by the CUC team, You Are Here: The Way We Transcend, is also on view at Cleveland Institute of Art’s Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery, just a few short blocks away from the Artists Archives and The Sculpture Center.
