Place as Process: Dan Cameron

June 22, 2017
7:00 pm
The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street

In 1991, Dan Cameron curated "The Savage Garden," at the Fundacion 'la Caixa,' Madrid. The exhibition explored ideas of landscape as metaphor, the gray area between abstraction and representation, and the desire to deny categorization between artistic mediums. Amongst the several artists included in the exhibition were David Ireland and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, both of them featured together in Box of Angels, the current exhibition at The David Ireland House. For his talk at 500 Capp Street, Cameron will expand on this exhibition and other projects that have informed his curatorial practice. Dan Cameron is Founder and Artistic Director of U.S. Biennial that produces Prospect New Orleans, a new international biennial whose first edition opened in November 2008. He is also the Director of Visual Arts at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans. Cameron was Senior Curator at the New Museum from 1995 to 2006, where he curated numerous exhibitions including Carroll Dunham, William Kentridge, Cildo Meireles, Christian Marclay, Paul McCarthy and Francesco Vezzoli. In 2003 Cameron served as Artistic Director for the 8th Istanbul Biennial, entitled Poetic Justice, and in 2006 he co-organized the 10th Taipei Biennial, Dirty Yoga. He is also a member of the graduate faculty of School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York. Presented by 500 Capp Street, the David Ireland House
